This spinach salad is a family favorite and very delicious. I made it for a picnic last weekend, and as always, people really liked it. The dressing makes a ton, so try a half recipe if you don’t want some to keep. Experiment with it to get it the flavor you want.
Susan’s Spinach Salad
1 large bag fresh baby spinach leaves
1/2 lb. fresh button mushrooms, sliced
2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1 large can mandarins oranges, drained well and dried in paper towels to absorb moisture
approx 2 cups of bean sprouts
real bacon bits
DRESSING: Make in blender:
1 c. salad oil
1 t. salt
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. vinegar
1 small onion, quartered so it will blend into miniscule pieces
1/3 c. ketchup
This salad works well when you dress it for everyone. Put the cashews and bacon bits in at the last minute so they’ll be crunchy. Enjoy!
