  1. Place pancetta in a large, deep frying pan. Cook over medium high heat until brown and crispy. Cover and reduce heat to lowest setting to keep bacon warm.
  2. In a small, dry frying pan, toast curry powder over medium heat, stirring often, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the vinegar and mustard. Add oil in a thin stream, whisking constantly, until the oil is completely incorporated. Add curry powder and whisk until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. In a large bowl, toss together the pancetta, spinach, mushrooms and vinaigrette until evenly coated. Adjust salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
