Spinach Salad And Dressing Recipe

This is the first salad I ever tasted that I actually LIKED rather than just endured. And that was when I was in my early thirties! I got it from my cousin and she got it originally from Sunset Magazine if I remember correctly. At any rate it's excellent. One of the few salads that I consider a full meal in itself. The dressing has become my house dressing. I usually make a double recipe. Keeps good in the fridge.

Step 1

Mix the dressing ingredients and set aside to blend flavors. Clean the spinach and lettuce and tear into pieces. Fry the bacon crisp and crumble it into not-too-small pieces. Chop the egg coarsely. Toss it all together and add dressing to taste.
