Baby Spinach 'n Pineapple Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Marie

This is a wonderful spinach salad with pineapple chunks, crispy fried bacon, hard cooked eggs and green onions. The dressing which includes pineapple juice, sesame seeds and ground ginger should be made ahead and chilled for several hours so that the flavors mingle. Really good!

This is a great salad! A nice alternative to a traditional chef salad. I dry toasted the sesame seeds. I also added some chopped red bell pepper. The dressing is very good.
