Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon-Mustard Dressing

A classic steakhouse-style spinach salad with the absolute best warm bacon-mustard dressing I’ve ever had! Looks and tastes like a lot of work, but can be prepared in no time! This salad can easily be converted to a main dish salad by adding strips of grilled chicken breast. Recipe from allrecipes.com
