SENSATIONAL SPINACH SALAD

Salad:

  • 1 lb. fresh spinach, stemmed and torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1 lb. bacon, fried crisp and then crumbled
  • 1/2 of a large red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced

Layer 1/2 spinach, 1/2 crumbled bacon, 1/2 onion slices, and 1/2 strawberries slices; repeat layers. Top with dressing (recipe below) and toss right before serving. Serves 6

 

Dressing:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 TB sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 TB Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Mix egg yolk, sugar, paprika, salt, pepper, mustard and Worcestershire sauce with electric mixer. With mixer running, slowly add oil and then vinegar. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Re-blend before pouring over salad as dressing tends to separate.
