Spinach Salad

Spinach Salad

(I don’t like the traditional hot bacon dressing used on spinach salads. I just use a simple vinaigrette, so that’s why I’m giving you here.)

Wash fresh spinach and spin dry. Hard boil an egg, chill and peel. Cut the egg into quarters.

Wash and slice fresh mushrooms. Slice part of a red onion. Put the spinach, onion and sliced mushrooms into a salad bowl and toss with salad dressing. Reserve some of the dressing to pour over the egg. Arrange on a plate or salad bowl and nestle sliced egg around greens. Top with shavings of parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper.

Salad Dressing:

3 parts olive oil

1 part vinegar (red wine vinegar is what I used here)

a small dab of Dijon mustard

a small drizzle of honey

salt, pepper

Whisk everything together in a small container (or shake in a jar) and pour over salad.
