Always a favorite at our home, always asked to bring to tailgating parties and always asked to make sure I'm serving this at home parties as well. YUMMMM! SPINACH, BACON AND EGG SALAD
1 lb. fresh spinach
2 hard-boiled eggs, sliced
1 red onion, thinly sliced
Bacon crumbles already done"026in grocery store dressing sections mostly.
1 C. vegetable oil
6 Tbs. red wine vinegar
5 Tbs. Splenda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. onion, grated
2 Tbs. lemon juice
freshly ground pepper
Directions Combine dressing ingredients. Shake well. Refrigerate at least one hour. Discard spinach stems and wash leaves thoroughly, (I always leave the stems on and use the Organic fresh spinach), pat dry on a paper towel. Combine spinach with eggs, red onion and bacon crumbles.
Heat a little olive oil in a pan, add some garlic and onions or shallots. Sweat these - don't brown or they'll get bitter. Then add spinach or whatever greens you prefer. Quickly saute to wilt the greens to your desired texture preference. Season with a little salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon. Even better if you cut up a little bacon and cook until crisp. Then proceed with the recipe above without the olive oil. Not as healthy, but everything tastes better with bacon!
