Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Mustard Dressing

I have always loved a good spinach salad. But, hadn't had one for awhile. This one comes from Allrecipes. A lovely dinner accompaniment. Photo from a friend & member Kim Biegacki.

The times for preparation and cooking were provided and do not account for preparing each item, like cooking bacon, toasting almonds, or boiling eggs. So, you may cook these ahead to save some time around dinner time, if you like.
