Thanksgiving Spinach Salad & Sweet Onion Dressing

Recipe by Debber
READY IN: 25mins
YIELD: 1 cup




  • Hard-boil two eggs (place in pot of water, bring to a boil; boil 3 minutes, turn off the heat--let sit in hot water 11 minutes, then pour off the water & cover with ice-cold tap water until cooled enough to handle); peel and slice or coarsely chop.
  • While that is working, fry the bacon, crumble into bite-size pieces; set aside.
  • Toast the almonds to a light golden brown (watch carefully so they don't burn).
  • Dump greens into a large serving bowl; set aside.
  • Drain the chestnuts, sprouts and oranges (rinse with sink sprayer -- and let drip while the eggs and bacon are working); set aside.
  • DRESSING: Add all these ingredients to a blender and PULSE whirl until well-mixed (but NOT pulverized---you want to see little flecks of onion in there).
  • Add water chestnuts, sprouts and oranges to the greens.
  • Drizzle dressing lightly over salad; toss gently.
  • Serve salad along with remaining dressing.
  • NOTE: Make one bag spinach, the other bag Romaine or a mixture of something interesting.
