Wilted Spinach Salad and Bacon Vinaigrette

Recipe by  

"Fresh baby spinach, sliced mushrooms, and boiled eggs are topped with a hot bacon vinaigrette with caramelized onions. Very satisfying and earthy! This is also great topped with grape tomatoes for a little tart pop reminiscent of a nice BLT."

Directions

  1. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels, reserving about 1 tablespoon bacon drippings in the skillet. Crumble bacon.
  2. Heat reserved bacon drippings over medium heat; cook and stir onion in hot bacon drippings until slightly tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Combine vegetable oil, sugar, vinegar, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and salt together in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sugar and salt are dissolved, about 5 minutes. Add bacon and onion and simmer over low heat until dressing is blended, 3 minutes.
  4. Mix spinach, mushrooms, and eggs together in a large bowl. Pour dressing over spinach mixture; toss to coat.

Very good! I halved the dressing portion and that was plenty for us. The only thing I would change next time is to use 1/2 the oil, as it was a bit too oily, so I had to scoop out some of it. The flavor of the dressing is great and went well with the other ingredients. I will be making this one again! Thanks for sharing. :)

I LOVE this recipe! My family was stuck in a rut with our regular rotation of vegetables, so I tried this salad as a side dish with roasted pork loin and it was a hit!! I do recommend halving the dressing (although my husband bought more spinach and gladly finished off the leftovers)! Also, we substituted sliced black olives for the fresh mushrooms.
