Chasen's Original Spinach Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Big Bill in Big D

Chasen's was the "in" place in Hollywood for many years until it closed a few years ago. We got this recipe out of one of the "ladies' magazines" over 40 years ago. We thought we had lost the recipe but it has turned up - and I am glad.

I've made this atleast 3 times, and I was sure I had reviewed it before now. Great salad. I also added some thin sliced red onion. Very good recipe, the flavors melded together very well. Easy to prepare as well, this is a keeper.
