Warm Spinach Salad with Fried Egg

I am not kidding you this is so delicious--for a light supper, lunch or brunch.

I wanted to take advantage of these AWESOME FARM EGGS
we bought on our trip this week to Santa Ynez, CA. We bought them at a roadside organic farm stand up there. I bought them because they were BEAUTIFUL...a light blue-green color shell. The ended up being dark yellow-orange yolky eggs that were sooo good....

Ok, here's the recipe.

Take a bowl full of washed and dried baby spinach--enough for 2 generous salads. Saute some torn up bread in garlic and good olive oil until browned. Take the bread out and now fry up 2 eggs over easy. Salt and pepper them as the cook. remove the eggs and keep warm.

Olive oil from Olive HIll Farm in Los Olivos CA

Now add about 1/3 cup good olive oil, some more garlic (or some chopped shallot) crumbled cooked bacon and about 1/3 cup red wine vinegar. Let this warm up together.

Now toss the salad with the croutons and this dressing. Add a handful of grated parmesan cheese. Toss well, add salt and pepper to taste. Divide among 2 plates and add the fried egg to the top. ENJOY immediately!
Make it a Great Day!
