Spinach Bacon Salad

spinach salad

I love this salad.  The combination of the creamy eggs, the salty bacon and the tangy dressing is fantastic.  The best part is that it can be made ahead of time and just tossed together when  you are ready to serve.  The dressing can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, so feel free to double or triple the recipe and you will have a great homemade recipe to use.

  4. If making ahead of time, slice the eggs and put away, put away the bacon and dressing.
  5. To serve, place the spinach in a serving bowl, toss with a little dressing. Be careful to add a little at a time, you don't want the spinach drowning in dressing. Add ¾ of the bacon and egg, toss the salad. Then garnish the top with the remaining bacon and egg.
