Fresh Spinach Salad

This recipe dates back to when Ron & I were first married, it was my first spinach salad and although we make various other salads with spinach we still enjoy this one very much. It is a heavier main-dish salad.

5 - 6 cups spinach, washed

3 hard cooked eggs, sliced

1 cup mushrooms, sliced

6 slices bacon, fried and crumbled (optional but delicious)


Salad Dressing

9 tbsp. vegetable oil

3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar

2 cloves garlic, crushed

3/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper

1/4 tsp. mustard


Mix spinach, mushrooms, egg and bacon in a large salad bowl.


Combine oil, vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper and mustard in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake to blend.

Just prior to serving, pour dressing over spinach mixture, tossing to coat well. Makes 6 servings.
