It's the dressing that truly makes this salad delicious.

Hello Michele - Get a clue! I have finally come to the conclusion that I just DON'T like sugar based dressing. The sugar in this pretty much ruined the taste of the salad, mind you the salad itself is AWESOME. The dressing - UGH! Thanks for the salad idea Terra.

This is an excellent recipe. I agree with the other poster that it took awhile, but maybe that's because I was multi-tasking. Definitely get the eggs boiling and the bacon cooking and then start on the dressing. My husband loved the sweetness, but I also think I would cut down on sugar. One warning: don't overcook. Whisk continuously, just until the onions get tender. I went off to work on another dish and the oil separated, and I ended up with a sticky, dark brown caramel ball. Had to start over.

Excellent salad Terra. I omitted the lettuce and doubled the spinach. The dressing was great with only 2T sugar. I'm not sure we would have like it with 2/3 cup. With modifications to the dressing, this salad is a winner! Thanks.

The dressing to this recipe is incredible in itself. I adjusted a little because I didn't have white wine vinegar. I used rice vinegar instead and it was delicious.

This was delicious with some mods. I made 1/2 of this recipe to make 4 servings. After reading lots of reviews, I changed some things for my 4 servings: used 1 Tbs. sugar (plenty sweet), used a combo of dry white wine and plain rice vinegar (didn't have white wine vinegar), subbed water for about 1/4 of the oil, used a 9 oz. bag of "Leafy Green Blend" (and omitted the iceberg lettuce), subbed 1/2 cup Mrs. Cubisson's Herb Seasoned Dressing for the croutons (next time I would not bother with either), and also added a bit of blue cheese. This made a huge amount of salad, more like a good 5-6 servings. Very good!!!

Scrumptious!! My 20 year old son who doesn't like salad - loved it!! I served it with the Arti-Cheesy Chicken. Great meal!!

I make this dressing often and keep it on hand. I use it for all kinds of salads...not just spinach. I do find that it mixes better if you let it come to room temperature before you serve it. It doesn't mix well cold.
