Yummo Spinach Salad

I can't believe I didn't get a good photo of this salad on it's own.
It is so good ! I can't wait for you all to try it and tell me what you think !!
It's a Pioneer Woman recipe ... they are ALWAYS good !!


You can find the orignial recipe here.
I didn't do it exactly like her.
Seemed too complicated !
Here's how I did it ...

Pioneer Woman’s Spinach Salad - the Bonnie Way.

3 eggs
bacon - how ever much you like
1 small red onion (or 1/2 large onion)
1 package white button mushrooms (about 12 mushrooms), sliced
8 ounces baby spinach, washed, dried, and large stems removed
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Dash of salt

Make hard boiled eggs. Set aside.

Fry bacon to desired crispiness. Add onions and mushrooms.

Make hot bacon dressing: Add 3 tablespoons bacon grease, vinegar, sugar, and Dijon to a small saucepan or skillet over medium-low heat. Whisk mixture together and heat thoroughly. Now ... I didn't have anywhere near that much bacon grease in my pan. I had very little in fact because I was using Australian, not American bacon !! I just added a bit of olive oil to the pan that I cooked everything in and then followed the same instructions as above ...

Add spinach to a large bowl. Arrange onions, mushrooms, and bacon on top. Pour hot dressing over the top; toss to combine.

Arrange sliced eggs over the top and serve.


I served this with Quinoa Crusted Chicken Fingers. That recipe coming soon ...

That looks so yummy! I will have to give it a try since I get spinach in my boxes of CSA veggies every week. :)
