  1. Place the eggs in a saucepan with enough cold water to cover. Bring to the boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover, and let eggs stand in hot water for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from hot water and cool. Peel, chop, and set aside.
  2. Cook the bacon in a frying pan over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, dice and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, toss together the eggs, bacon, spinach, mushrooms, strawberries, onion, kiwi and orange.
