It's a lovely pleasure to enjoy a quiet, savory meal all by yourself. You can take your time, appreciate the food, and eat whatever you like! Of course, these opportunities of peaceful tranquility are usually far and few in between. When I do steal a meal for myself, I like to make a delicious plate of crisp salad. There are endless possibilities and combinations when it comes to salads and since this one is for you only, make it exactly how you want. For the ultimate alone salad,
4 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
4 cups lightly packed bite-size pieces spinach leaves
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms (3 ounces)
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.
- Toss spinach, mushrooms, cheese and shrimp in large bowl.
- Drizzle hot bacon dressing over spinach mixture; toss to coat. Serve immediately.
