Wilted Spinach Salad

Personally, I don’t often eat salad, and I don’t know how to make vegetable salad either. I can only eat those vegetable salads or any salad when I am dining out or someone close to me makes it. Nevertheless, this time, I want to try this new found and easy to make (I think) Wilted spinach salad with some bacon on it using microwave (that I seldom use) because I promise myself that I would try to live healthy and eat plenty of healthy foods this year. I wish I could fulfill that promise. wink”

Microwave cooking is perfect for me this time of the month because I am still doing self conversation if I would buy a new burner or not… LOL
