  • 8 ounces turkey bacon

  • 3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 pound baby spinach

  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced (¾ cup)

  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese

  • 4 hard-cooked eggs, quartered

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment; arrange bacon in a single layer. Bake until browned and crisp, turning once halfway through, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. When cool, slice crosswise into 1/2-inch strips.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together vinegar and oil; season with salt and pepper. Add spinach and onion, and toss to combine. Divide among plates; sprinkle with turkey bacon and cheese. Serve with quartered eggs and herb toasts on the side.
