Samantha called the other day and asked for this recipe. I had not made it in a while and had the ingredients on hand, so I made it for lunch today. It is really good and easy.
- 1 bag fresh spinach
- 3 hard-boiled eggs
- 10 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
- 1 can sliced water chestnuts, drained
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 T Ketchup
- 2 T red wine vinegar
- 2 T bottled Italian salad dressing
- 1 T Worcestershire sauce
- salt to taste
Thoroughly clean spinach, discarding stems. Tear into bite size pieces. Chop eggs (I sliced) and combine with spinach, bacon and water chestnuts.
Combine all dressing ingredients in a jar. Shake thoroughly to combine well. Toss with spinach just before serving. Dressing can be made several hours ahead of time.
I had a bag of spinach mixed with other lettuces in the frig. I used that. It turned out fine, but I prefer spinach only. I did not have any water chestnuts so I did not add them.
This recipe came from Celebrate San Antonio by The San Antonio Junior Forum. That is one place I want to visit. Has anyone been there before? If so, what are some must see, do and taste that I need to know about for when I visit?
