Spinach Salad with Warm Salami

We really enjoyed this salad that Jessie posted.  My husband and I put our gingersnaps to bed and enjoyed a nice quiet dinner by ourselves.  Next time, I'll omit the salt from the dressing as the meat was salty enough on its own.

2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 pound hard salami (such as Genoa), cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt (I'll leave this out next time)
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 red onion, sliced into rings
6 cups (about 9 ounces) spinach, cleaned and stemmed
4 eggs, hard-boiled

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the salami and cook until sizzling and browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Using a slotted spoon, remove and set aside the salami, leaving the rendered fat. 

Add the mustard, honey, vinegar, salt, pepper, and the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to pan and whisk together to form a thin emulsion. Add the onion and salami and return to medium heat. Cook just until the onion wilts, about 1 minute. Divide the spinach among serving plates. Pour the hot salami dressing over the greens. Serve with the eggs, chopped, if desired.
