Recipe: Spinach Salad with Smokey Joe's Kosher Beef Bacon

This is a recipe from my mother, from whom I learned to cook. Everything she touches is simply delicious, mostly because she makes everything with a full heart. She loves entertaining, and cooking for her family. This recipe is perfect as a first course, a side dish or a light meal paired with our GazpaJoe. 


1 bag spinach

2 hard-boiled eggs

1 small onion

8 slices Smokey Joe's Kosher Beef Bacon

2 tomatoes

Pro tip: Candied or toasted walnuts 

Pro tip: 1 avocado, sliced


1 cup salad oil

1/2 cup red wine vinegar

1/2 cup sugar
