Health Highlights
A hearty salad with spinach, eggs and turkey! Great taste!

Ingredients


2 large egg Egg (hard boiled, cut into quarters)
2 slice Turkey bacon, cooked
1 large egg Egg yolk (for dressing)
1 tbsp Dijon mustard (for dressing)
4 tbsp Lemon juice (for dressing)
1 dash Sea Salt (for dressing)
1/2 tsp Black pepper (for dressing)
1/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil (for dressing)
2 cup Spinach (washed and dried)
1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
1 tbsp Roquefort (blue) cheese (crumbled)

Instructions


  1. Add eggs to a pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and continue to boil for about 8 minutes. Remove eggs from heat, drain, and cool in ice water. Once cooled, peel and quarter the eggs. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the turkey bacon in a skillet over medium heat, turning every 2 minutes for a total of 10 minutes (or until bacon had reached desired crispiness), adjusting heat if necessary. Using tongs, transfer strips to a paper-towel-lined plate to absorb some of the excess oil. Cut bacon into bite-size pieces for the salad. Set aside
  3. Separate 1 large egg yolk in a separate large bowl and whisk for 30 seconds. Add the whisked egg yolk to a food processor (or blender) with the mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and blend until smooth. Slowly add oil until emulsified.
  4. Arrange the spinach on a large plate, covering the entire base. Place the egg quarters, bacon pieces, cherry tomatoes, and cheese over the bed of spinach, arranging each ingredient in a strip. 
  5. Drizzle the salad dressing over top and enjoy!
