Clinkerdagger Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by ratwoman

For years, I drove past the sign for "Clinkerdagger, Bickerstaff, and Pett" thinking it was an attorney office. Someone finally set me straight and introduced me to their spinach salad. This has been my preferred version ever since. We serve it with warm, buttered French bread to make a meal.

I remember eating this salad at Clinkerdagger Bickerstaff & Petts in Tacoma, WA. It was the 70's, my sister and I were young and it was my favorite restaurant because I loved the dark wood, the Edwardian English Pub atmosphere and especially the waitstaff dressed in period clothing. It was always an exciting evening for us to see the costumes; eating the food was just a bonus! This salad is super easy to make and this Christmas day my whole family got a piece of it. DS(18) chopped fresh bacon, DD(5) tore the spinach and DH mixed up the dressing ingredients. I had the fresh Parmesan, but forgot to add it before taking photos. Everyone really enjoyed this recipe and DH, who rarely enjoys a green salad, had 3 helpings! Thanks for posting a link to my past, ratwoman!
