Less then 10 ingredients.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

6 – 8 strips bacon (your choice; for this recipe I used turkey bacon)
¼ cup maple syrup
½ tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
12 cups baby spinach
1 cup radish, sliced
½ cup Balsamic Vinaigrette salad dressing
½ cup blue cheese, crumbled (add more as desired)
2 tablespoons chives, chopped

First step; prepare and cook your maple infused peppercorn bacon.

Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Lay bacon on baking tray. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes or until bacon is crispy. Remove from oven. Pour syrup over bacon and sprinkle with pepper. Return to oven and bake for another 5 – 8 minutes until bacon in bubbling and coated. Set aside to cool on the baking tray. Remove from baking tray and crumble.

Next, arrange your pre-washed spinach and radish in a large bowl. Toss with dressing. Top with bacon, blue cheese and chives, and serve.
