Spinach salad is a salad with spinach as its main ingredient. Common additional ingredients include tomatoes, mushrooms, bean sprouts, onions, eggs, cheese, slivered almonds, walnuts and/or fresh or dried berries, such as cranberry, or strawberry. This one is easy with just 6 ingredients, including bacon. Instead of a warm bacon dressing we’ve made one that’s sweet & sour. Serves 4-5 Total Time: 10 minutes.
1 qt fresh baby spinach, washed and steamed
1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 cup crisp bean spouts
2 green onions, sliced thinly
2 hard boiled eggs, sliced thinly
4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
Sweet & Sour Dressing
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Prepare spinach and transfer to a serving bowl. Add in the mushrooms, bean spouts, eggs and green onions; top with crumbled bacon. In a jar add all of the dressing ingredients, cover and shake until blended. Serve dressing at the table with the salad, so each person can pour their own desired amount. Store extra salad dressing in the refrigerator. It will keep up to a month. Yum Yum!
