Spinach & Basil Salad

The title of the magazine article is "Spinach Salad Gets a Flavor Makeover: New flavors and textures perk up a classic salad". It has a lot of steps, but if you follow the directions, it's not hard at all.

Gary is like Mikey; he'll eat anything. But I could tell he didn't really care for it. Especially the texture of the broiled tomatoes. Me? I thought this salad was awesome! The candied walnuts are scary good! When (if?) I do this again, though, I'll be adding more than a pinch of cayenne to them. Maybe two pinches? Three?

I can eat those walnuts by the handful! What a nice meal.

What's not to like about a salad with freakin' bacon in it? Yum. Love the candied walnuts too, nice!
