This recipe comes for a BHG small CB with favorite recipes from 1930 until 2001. This particular recipe comes from 1941. This recipe interests me because when I was in my early teens, our family went back to Oklahoma to visit all our relatives. This was the salad that my aunt made every day we were there. I have never had it since then.

- In a large bowl combine spinach, mushrooms, and green onions. Set Aside.

I love wilted spinach salad, and this recipe sure delivers. In fact, it's very similar to my usual recipe. I used about 200 grams of baby spinach, cider vinegar and a little extra dry mustard. My mushrooms looked a bit sorry, so I subbed with 8 largish cherry tomatoes that I cut in half. My photos show the salad on its own and with Salmon Mornay. Thanks so much for posting.
Enjoyed this as part of a light dinner! I used apple cider vinegar and turkey bacon. This was good, but I felt that it was missing a little something and needed more flavor. I would probably add some pepper next time. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT6.
Hubby and I really enjoyed it and we grated the egg as someone else mentioned, and I recommend that as well! Thanks for the great recipe, brought me back to childhood, my mom use to make this a lot. Made for ZWT6 asia region.
