• 2 teaspoons cornstarch
• 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel

• 1/2 of a medium sweet orange or red pepper, cut into thin bite-size strips


In a large salad bowl combine spinach, mushrooms, and onions; set aside.

In a 12" skillet or a Dutch oven cook bacon over medium heat until crisp.  Remove bacon; drain on paper towels. Set aside.
