Springtime Spinach Salad

Yield: 12-16 servings

Source: Adapted from Fine Cooking


  • 200 grams of bacon, cooked crisp and diced (reserve the leftover bacon grease)
  • 1/3 cup grated onion
  • 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 pounds of spinach, washed, dried and chopped
  • 3 large eggs, hard-boiled & chopped
  • 3 cups of garlic croutons


  1. In a small skillet, heat the bacon grease and add the onion to saute until softened. Cool slightly and add vinegar and mustard.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the spinach with bacon, eggs, croutons and vinaigrette. Serve immediately.


This recipe is very simple to through together, but does require some items to be cooked & prepared. You can do several of these things the night before and toss everything together after preparing the vinaigrette.
