Paleo Shrimp & Spinach Salad w Hot Bacon Dressing

My kids were home from school for a snow day today, so I got to hang with them rather then obsess too much in the kitchen. This salad is short and sweet, and the perfect choice for lunch or a busy night.

I adapted it from a Betty Crocker recipe, which kind of amused me as I'm anything but a Betty Crocker kind of gal...

I did really like the inclusion of the feta, but if you're a better paleo person than me you can definitely omit it.

Paleo Shrimp & Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing

4 slices bacon, chopped
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tbs. raw honey
1/4 tsp. ground mustard
salt & pepper
4 cups baby spinach
1 cup sliced mushrooms
 large handful feta cheese (optional)
1/2 lb. cooked, peeled, deveined shrimp

Cook bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp. Stir in onion, vinegar, honey and mustard; stir until completely dissolved. Season with salt and pepper.

Toss spinach, mushrooms, feta (if using) and shrimp in a large bowl. Drizzle with hot bacon dressing and serve.

  2. I just started the Paleo diet on Monday and was looking for a shrimp recipe on Pinterest when I came across this one. I made it for lunch today (minus the feta) and it was INCREDIBLE!! Thank you so much for this. It will definitely be a once a week meal.
