* Makes 2 cups
- 4 oz. bacon (cut into 1/2 inch pieces)
- 1/4 cup green onions chopped finely
- 1/2 cup red onions chopped 1/4"

- Start by making the Hot Bacon Vinaigrette. This recipe can also be made several days ahead of time and then reheated when you are ready for a salad.
- Marinade the chicken breasts in one cup of the dressing for 4-6 hours.
- In a salad bowl place 4 oz. of cleaned baby spinach leaves. Sprinkle the spinach with Red Seedless Grapes that have been cut in half, Feta Cheese, Toasted Pine nuts, and Roma tomato wedges.
- Grill the chicken breast and, while it is still hot, slice it in thin strips and place it on the salad.
- Next ladle about 1/4 cup of the Hot Bacon Vinaigrette on the salad and serve it.
- In a braising pan start by placing the bacon in the pan on medium heat. Cook while stirring until the bacon is brown and crisp.
- Next add the Green Onions, Red Onions, and Chopped Garlic. Cook in the bacon fat until the onions are transparent.
- Now you add the flour while stirring and cook for 2-3 minutes to allow the roux to form and cook.
- Now you can add the rest of the ingredients and bring them to a boil.
- Remove from heat and serve or cool in the refrigerator and store up to 5 days.
