1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
4 cups lightly packed bite-size pieces spinach leaves

1 cup crumbled feta cheese (4 ounces)
1/2 pound cooked peeled deveined medium shrimp


Cook bacon in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp. Stir in vinegar, sugar and mustard; continue stirring until sugar is dissolved.

Additional Information

Add loads of flavor when you change just one ingredient. Use an herb-flavored feta for a totally new taste.

Use a store-bought creamy ranch dressing in place of the hot bacon dressing for a quick, cold, creamy tossed salad.
