Spinach Apple Toss

If you want a very nice salad combination, this is it.  I found some really crisp, sweet, new crop apples and the Colby cheese is from the Kalona Cheese House at the Twin County Dairy north of Kalona, Iowa.  It’s so well known, in the Stringtown Amish area, that P. Buckley Moss actually used the store in a picture.
The dressing on this salad is so simple and delicious on a fruit salad, it was a real surprise.  With the bacon, egg and cheese, it can be a main dish for a light lunch.

  4        Slices  Bacon -- 1/2" pieces
  4        Cups  Spinach Leaves -- torn
