To serve the dressing warm, microwave it for 15-20 seconds.
Crumble or slice the cooked bacon.
Slice the mushrooms.
Slice the hardboiled eggs.
Arrange the spinach, eggs, bacon, mushrooms in a bowl and drizzle with warm bacon dressing.
You can assemble this salad ahead of time, but add the dressing right before serving while the bacon drippings are still warm.
