Shrimp and Spinach Salad with Bacon Dressing

Back to food, my favorite thing.  I found this recipe in an issue of Women’s Health and made it for dinner a couple weeks ago.

According to the article, the fat in the bacon helps you absorb the antioxidant lutein from the spinach.  I’m always hesitant to make things with bacon, as I cringe when I see the actual stripes of fat I’m ingesting.  I used reduced sodium turkey bacon when I made this, which is a lot lower in fat than regular bacon.  Hopefully, I still got a good amount of lutein absorption!
