Fresh baby spinach, sliced mushrooms, and boiled eggs are topped with a hot bacon vinaigrette with caramelized onions. Very satisfying and earthy! This is also great topped with grape tomatoes for a little tart pop reminiscent of a nice BLT.

  • Heat reserved bacon drippings over medium heat; cook and stir onion in hot bacon drippings until slightly tender, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Combine vegetable oil, sugar, vinegar, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and salt together in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sugar and salt are dissolved, about 5 minutes. Add bacon and onion and simmer over low heat until dressing is blended, 3 minutes.

  • Mix spinach, mushrooms, and eggs together in a large bowl. Pour dressing over spinach mixture; toss to coat.

Very good! I halved the dressing portion and that was plenty for us. The only thing I would change next time is to use 1/2 the oil as it was a bit too oily so I had to scoop out some of it. The flavor of the dressing is great and went well with the other ingredients. I will be making this one again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I LOVE this recipe! My family was stuck in a rut with our regular rotation of vegetables so I tried this salad as a side dish with roasted pork loin and it was a hit!! I do recommend halving the dressing (although my husband bought more spinach and gladly finished off the leftovers)! Also we substituted sliced black olives for the fresh mushrooms. Read More

I did drop the amount of oil. This time around I believe I had too much sugar not enough vinegar. I need to learn to measure! I see in the photo attached to the original recipe that dressing is on the side. I think I'll try that next time. Bacon should be well done. Onions less done. Love this and will make again and again Read More

It was very tasty and was a hit with my guests. Every bit was eaten. It makes quite a bit and I think next time I will reduce the amount of oil used. Good recipe. Read More
