I'm sorry but I could only give this a 3 star. Too oily and very bland tasting. I do love Tarragon that is why I chose this spinach salad but there are many other spinach salads here so I wll have to try a few more. Read More

This is one of the best salad recipes I've made from this web-site. The combination of flavors is great and the salad dressing is awesome. My husband who does not like eggs in his salad couldn't get enough. The only change I made was I used 1/4 cup of olive oil instead of 1/2 cup of vegetable oil and the dressing was not too oily at all. Wonderful tasting salad!! Read More

Couldn't really taste the tarragon but it was still very good. I decreased the amount of dressing by half otherwise it probably would've been too oily. Read More

I did this salad without the bacon (vegetarian). I did the dressing the night before and out it in a jar and shook it well before using. It was a good salad needed to up the salt to cut out the sweetness a bit. Good with pasta as a basic spinach salad. It was well received by my guests. Read More

The vinaigrette is the best! The salad can be dressed up with fresh mushrooms and grape tomatoes to make it perfect! Read More

This is a great simple salad. The first time I made it I put a bit of the bacon fat with olive oil. It was a bit greasy - but so yummy! This last time I made it I cut out the bacon used only olive oil cut the dressing ingredients in half and used sherry vinegar. So good. I love the tarragon with the spinach. Read More
