Bacon. Boiled Eggs. Mushrooms. and Carrots. Plus Croutons. Homemade, if possible. See my Homemade Sourdough Crouton Recipe Here.

 

Ingredients for Spinach Salad with Vinegar Dressing

For the Dressing:

  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • sugar
  • red wine vinegar
  • celery seed
  • dried minced onion
  • kosher salt
  • dry mustard
  • paprika

For the Salad:

  • baby spinach
  • button mushrooms
  • bacon
  • boiled eggs
  • carrot
  • croutons

Instructions for this Dressing and Salad

In a glass measuring cup, mix together olive oil, sugar, red wine vinegar, celery seed, minced onion, dried mustard, paprika, and salt. Pour into a medium cruet with a tight fitting lid. Set aside until ready to use. Shake well before using.

To prepare the spinach salad, cook bacon and boil eggs. To slice the egg and mushrooms you may opt to use an egg slicer instead of a knife. I find the little gadgets most handy, but you decide.

To julienne the carrots, you will want to use a sharp knife. I like using my Santoku knife for this job.

In a large bowl, combine spinach, mushrooms, carrots, bacon, boiled eggs, and croutons. Toss well. Right before serving, drizzle dressing over salad. Toss to coat. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper as desired. Makes 6-8 servings.

Be sure to use a vinaigrette bottle or cruet for the dressing. Or even a small creamer works well and will give your table that added special touch.

Serve this salad with Honey-Glazed Grilled Chicken Thighs, Grilled Pork Chops, or Sirloin Steak.

For a wine to serve with this salad, I recommend Chateau Ste. Michele Riesling from Washington’s Colombia Valley.
