Combine vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper in a small saucepan. Heat throughout, but not boiling. Pour over spinach salad, toss until evenly coated. Add crumbled crisp bacon, finely cut boiled eggs, and thinly sliced red onion. Toss lightly and serve. This is a wonderful spring salad. For somthing a little different add dried cranberries to your liking. Very Good!
