This is a very easy spinach salad to make. The dressing has some unusual ingredients but is very delicious. I never have leftovers at potlucks when I take this salad.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place the bacon into a skillet over medium heat, and cook until browned and crisp, turning often, about 10 minutes. Transfer the bacon to paper towels to absorb excess grease. Crumble the bacon when cool.

  • Place the spinach into a large salad bowl, and sprinkle with the bacon, hard-cooked eggs, and onion. Gently toss the salad.

  • In a bowl, whisk together the sugar, ketchup, vegetable oil, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce until the sugar has dissolved. Pour the dressing over the salad, and toss thoroughly to combine all ingredients.

I enjoyed this salad. I didn't have bacon so I used bacon bits. Kind of embarrased but I am out of ketchup and sugar and have very little olive oil so I couldn't make the dressing. I used a bottled french dressing. Read More

I love the salad dressing. I used 1/8 c. water and 1/8 cup oil and splenda for the sugar to help cut down a little fat and sugar. This is a family favorite for any kind of salad. Read More

I was looking for a spinach salad dressing recipe like one I made years ago. I finally found it! This is delicious! It is my summer craving and I can't get enough. It is amazing just the way made as posted. Depending what I have on hand or my mood I may leave out bacon or egg and add lots of other colorful veggies in. No matter what I do to it it is amazing! We made it last night for dinner as listed it was a hit. Today for lunch with added red yellow and orange peppers and grape tomatoes and I could not get enough. Still have lots of dressing left (yum) now to go buy more spinach. Very versatile great for families cookouts and crowd pleasing. Read More

So easy delicious and healthy! The dressing is basically a Catalina dressing. I had a homemade version on hand and just used that. I would not think to add it to a salad like this but it did complement the salad nicely. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Really good and simple enough to make. I only got a little on my plate because it was mostly gone when I sat down (just me and the BF ate lol) so that speaks volumes since hes not much of a veggies eater. Watch the sugar since how much you need will really depend on your brand of ketchup and I had to add salt to mine but again depends on what ketchup your using. I used all the drippings from the bacon and added enough oil to make the 1/4c needed. I wold totally make this one again! Read More

I used bacon bits as well and the salad was quite good. The dressing is what makes the salad. I usually only make half of the dressing and double the salad components. Read More
