Wilted Spinach Salad and Bacon Vinaigrette

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels, reserving about 1 tablespoon bacon drippings in the skillet. Crumble bacon.
  2. Heat reserved bacon drippings over medium heat; cook and stir onion in hot bacon drippings until slightly tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. 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.
  4. Mix spinach, mushrooms, and eggs together in a large bowl. Pour dressing over spinach mixture; toss to coat.

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...

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.
