This is great salad for a potluck or BBQ. I always get lots of compliments and requests for the recipe. Ensure that dressing is thoroughly mixed before tossing with salad, it will separate while chilling.

Wow - this is delicious! We are low-carb so I used Stevia instead of sugar and left out the stuffing - and it was PERFECT! Huge hit - thank you! Read More

I made some minor changes to the recipe: used Dijon mustard instead of yellow, substituted mushrooms for the packaged dressing and cut the sugar down to 1/2 teaspoon. It turned out awesome, with fresh spinach from my garden! Read More

I wanted something different from what I usually make and this was perfect. I left out the stuffing because I wanted something lighter and it was really good. I will be making it again as hubs had seconds. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Excellent Salad. I did not have any stuffing so I added some slivered almonds and tomatoes. Also did cut the sugar in half. This is a keeper. Read More

Couldn't find spinach at the last minute so I substituted mixed spinach and lettuce. Didn't seem to make any difference people LOVED it. It was excellent and I followed the original recipe for the dressing. I really don't like yellow mustard but decided to go ahead with it because of the tang. So glad I did it wasn't too mustardy at all. The only thing I changed was cooking the onions in with the bacon. I will definitely make this again! Read More

Made as written with one exception and that is that I only used 1/4 cup of sugar instead of 1/3 cup. I only made the change due to personal preference. From past experience I've learned that we like equal ratio of sugar and vinegar. This was excellent! If you are like us and there is only two of you keep your dressing separate an add it to your individual servings to keep the spinach from wilting. This one is a keeper! Read More
