Italian Spinach Salad - Toh

Italian Spinach Salad - Toh created by breezermom

From TOH Simple and Delicious Mar/April edition 2008. I'm saving this for a spring salad choice when baby spinach is in season locally. It looks very simple to put together. I'm really drawn to it by the warm dressing you use over the salads. Makes 8 salad plates/servings - so adjust as necessary. I've already made a few adjustments based on my personal preferences (cooked bacon over bacon bits, vidalia onion over red, and added the red peppers).

ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh Baby Spinach
  • 2 medium tomatoes, quartered
  • 8 large fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 hard-cooked eggs, quartered
  • 12 cup cooked bacon, finely chopped (they said Bacon bits but I like only fresh)
  • 1 small vidalia onion, sliced and separated into rings
  • 1 medium red pepper, sliced thinly
  • 3 tablespoons fresh dill, snipped (optional)
  • 1 12 cups Italian salad dressing
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 13 cup seasoned croutons

directions

  • On eight salad plates, arrange the spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, eggs, bacon, onion, red pepper and dill (if desired).
  • In a small saucepan, cook the salad dressing and sugar over low heat until sugar is dissolved.
  • Drizzle over the prepared salad plates and then sprinkle the salads with croutons.
  • Serve immediately!

    Very good salad. I normally do my spinach salads with a warm vinaigrette, and this was a nice change. I left out the onion... my stomach is having issues with onions right now! But it would be fabulous with them. Thanks for sharing! Made for Photo Tag game.

    I made this for a luncheon I catered and it was a huge hit! I did omit the dill as I didn't have any. I will definitely make it again. Thank you for posting!
