You could use this one with a few modifications:


1/2 lb. bacon
1/2 c. chopped onion
2 tbsp. flour (leave out, or replace with 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum)
2 tbsp. sugar (replace with Splenda)
1 tsp. celery seed
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. vinegar (or part vinegar and part water)
1 c. water

Cook bacon until crisp; drain and crumbled. Cook onion in 1/4 cup reserved bacon fat (or use oil in place of fat) until tender. Blend in flour, sugar, celery seed, salt and dash of pepper. Add vinegar and 1 cup water.

Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Can use less vinegar and more water for milder dressing.


Or this:

Don't recall the restaurant, but while on vacation I had a warm spinach salad one evening. It was delicious and very filling. These recipes look great!
