Fresh, tender spinach, avocado, and bacon tossed together in a bowl is a marriage of some of our favorite ingredients. When new spinach comes up in the garden or when the farmer’s markets display their big bins of greens, it’s hard not to crave a big bowl of this wonderful combination for dinner.
We first started to grow spinach by tossing a few seeds in a wine barrel that was used as a planter. Within a few weeks, we had the most incredible spinach greens. Now we’re addicted and eagerly await the first spinach crop of every season. For this recipe, we show our love of avocados too, by doubling up on them: one for the vinaigrette, and the other cut into chunks and added to the salad. And of course you can always add more bacon if you like.
