Warm Spinach Salad with Egg, Rosemary Potatoes & Dijon Vinaigrette


This is a delicious salad to enjoy for lunch or dinner.  I like to use it when I have leftover Rosemary Potatoes.  If you’re vegetarian (make it using a vegetarian bacon substitute).  If you’re Vegan, use a vegan bacon substitute and instead of eggs grilled tofu!
