Spinach Bacon Salad

My Spinach Bacon Salad is a family favorite recipe from my mom!  The perfect recipe for big family functions and summer BBQs.  It is made with my delicious homemade croutons and of course hard boiled eggs.

Ingredients

Spinach Salad Dressing

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1 small white onion grated (see note)

Bacon Spinach Salad

  • 2 5 ounce bags baby spinach steams removed
  • 1 15 ounce can bean sprouts drained
  • 1 8 ounce can sliced water chestnuts drained
  • 3 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 pound bacon cooked, and crumbled
  • 2 cups croutons

Instructions

  • To make the salad dressing, combine all the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth.
  • Toss all of the salad ingredients together in a large salad bowl.  Either add a small amount of dressing and toss to combine (adding the croutons after the dressing), or serve the dressing on the side.

Notes

Grating an onion can be time consuming and annoying.  I find it easier to dice the onion small and then add it to a food processor to mince it smaller and then adding the remaining dressing ingredients and processing until smooth.
