Hot Bacon Dressing (For Spinach Salad)

Total Time

This is one of our all time favorite dressings to use on spinach salad. We like to add some chopped boiled eggs to our fresh spinach along with sliced fresh mushrooms. This is enough dressing for one-half of a small bag of spinach. EDITED: To say this is enough for half a bag of cleaned spinach.

Yummy - I doubled the vinegars (1 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 balsamic) as well, and added some olive oil, 1/4 tsp ginger and a pinch of celery salt - then a sprinkle of cornstarch to thicken it up. Even my hubs who's not a fan of sweet dressings loved it!

I doubled the dressing, added tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs and fresh pepper. It was a hit.

Another tasty recipe from Luby! I used slightly less than half a bag of spinach, and the dressing quantity worked out well. Thanks also for the suggestions of including chopped eggs, tomatoes and cracked pepper--all were added and enjoyed.
