About this Recipe

Here is my version of the classic spinach salad. You can add a sprinkle of grated cheese or cheese chunks if you like, I prefer it this way, with a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch.


4 oz baby spinach
1 large hardboiled egg
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp sugar
2 mushrooms, caps closed
4 slices Maple Leaf bacon
1 tsp old fashioned course mustard
fresh ground pepper


Hardboil, peel and slice egg. Slice mushrooms. In two medium bowls or plates alternatively layer spinach and mushrooms and bacon in that order. Top with eggs

In a glass whisk oil vinegar and sugar for a few minutes. If it thickens it is done, if not do not worry. At the finish stir in mustard. Top salad with this dressing about 2 tbsp.


Buy mushrooms with caps closed if you can so you can wash them. You can use pre-cooked bacon for convenience.
