4 servings


  • 8 cups spinach, tough stems removed

  • 2 cups coarsely chopped radicchio

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 2 slices bacon, chopped

  • 1 large shallot, halved and sliced (1/2 cup)

  • 3 cups sliced mixed mushrooms, such as shiitake, oyster and cremini

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon honey


  1. Combine spinach and radicchio in a large bowl.

  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and shallot and cook, stirring, until the bacon is crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Add mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until the mushrooms are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, vinegar and honey, scraping up any browned bits. Immediately pour the warm vinaigrette over the spinach mixture and toss to coat.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
