This made a lovely quick evening meal last night. I used cos instead of spinach and made my own croutons. Very nice indeed.
I needed a fat-free salad dressing recipe and this fit the bill perfectly! I omitted the bacon and sauted the onion and garlic in only a drop of olive oil. Used only 1 1/2 tbsp of splenda and added about 2 tsp of red wine vinegar. This was very yummy served with baby spinach leaves and sliced apples. Will be made often :)
I loved this! I used 2 pieces of turkey bacon from butterball which is 25 calories a slice! I also added a little balsamic vinegar , just because I love the way it taste with dijon mustard! I always felt guilty when I would eat the warm spinach salad from Applebees. Now I can Make my own with no guilt! Yum Yum! Thanks for posting!!!
Replaced the croutons with sliced mushrooms cooked along with the turkey bacon. The results were really good. Next time I will cut the mustard by a teaspoon or so as I thought it was a little to heavy compared to the other flavors in the dish.
We really enjoyed this. I used regular bacon and was really glad to have the Splenda in it instead of sugar! I will cut back just a bit on the amount of vinigar the next time - but there will be a next time! I also used just one garlic clove - because I have learned by experience that I prefer a mild garlic taste.
I used to make this all the time and loved it. Now that we don't eat pork I tried it with veggie bacon. It doesn't have quite the taste, but still good. I added a little olive oil to the veggie bacon because it was dry. Thanks Paula!
Love this dressing! Would also like to try cooling it a bit and use it on other salads as well. Used regular bacon - all I had on hand. Also added some grape tomatoes. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing it, Paula.
Paula, this is fantabulous! My whole family loved it. I added some roma tomato slices because they were there. The dressing has a unique sweet and sour taste that is out of this world. This deserves more than 5 stars - a definite keeper. I will be making this over and over again. Thanks, Paula!
This turned out great and was so easy to make. I love that the dressing doesn't have any oil and uses Splenda instead of sugar. I will definately make this again. Thanks for posting!
