1 pound fresh spinach
1/3 cup olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 c balsamic vinegar
1/4 c lemon juice
1/2 t salt 
pinch of sugar
dash pepper
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 hard cooked eggs, diced
4-6 slices crisp bacon, crumbled (save grease)
sliced mushrooms
1/2 small red onion, sliced thin

Rinse and tear spinach a bit, then chill. Marinate sliced onions in 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 1/2 tsp sugar, and a pinch of salt for about 30 minutes. 

Combine oil, garlic, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and sugar in a small saucepan. Heat until it just starts to simmer. Remove from heat and stir in about a tablespoon of the bacon grease.

Toss spinach with eggs, mushrooms, bacon, and onions. Drizzle half the dressing over the salad and toss again. Top with parmesan cheese. (or toss it in too) Reserve the rest of the dressing for people to drizzle as they please.
