A hearty salad with spinach, eggs and turkey! Great taste!
2 large egg
(hard boiled, cut into quarters)
Turkey bacon, cooked
1 large egg
Extra virgin olive oil
(washed and dried)
Roquefort (blue) cheese
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.
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
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.
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.
Drizzle the salad dressing over top and enjoy!

Eggs are a high-quality and affordable protein source!
Turkey Bacon is a great healthy alternative to other bacon cuts and has a fair amount of protein.
