Spinach Salad


  • 2 bunches of fresh spinach, washed and chopped
  • 3 oz. slivered almonds
  • 1/2 lb. bacon, fried and crumbled
  • 1 8 oz. can water chestnuts, sliced
  • 2 cups fresh bean sprouts
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 eggs, hard-cooked and sliced (optional; for garnish)
  • 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup catsup


Mix together. (If using a blender to mix, chopped onion is fine instead of grated.) Mix dressing with salad ingredients. Recipe makes more dressing than needed but it keeps well and works well on lettuce salad or as a marinade for beef and chicken.

Spinach Salad

For a healthier version, prepare with turkey bacon. It is a bit more expensive but worth it. (08/29/2005)

Spinach Salad

Although all of these recipes sound yummy, I think the first one that uses the warm bacon dressing to wilt the spinach sounds the very best of all! I will be trying this very soon. Thanks for the recipe! (08/28/2008)
