This is an awesome spinach salad, with the best Honey-Mustard dressing ever! Make the dressing first and refrgerate to blend flavors. I have had this recipe on a sheet of paper for years and years, the paper is tattered, yet I have no idea where it came from. Presumably there is a Taylor's Landing somewhere, that deserves the credit. Yummy! (The prep times does not include the dressing-chilling time or time to boil the egg). The dressing makes 1 pint.
