Other ingredients to add or substitute:
Minced fresh mushrooms
Minced green onions
1 tablespoon finely minced white onion
2 tablespoons finely minced celery heart
1/2 teaspoon finely minced green bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon finely minced yellow pepper
1/2 teaspoon finely minced fresh parsley
1/2 cup Heinz catsup
3/4 cup salad oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/2 teaspoon worchestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon oregano
At least 2 bunches of fresh spinach
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
6 slices good bacon fried crisp and crumbled
Take the minced ingredients (onion, pepper, celery, parsley) and mince them all together until you have an extremely fine pulp. Put it all into a large bowl.
Add to the minced mixture everything except the spinach, eggs and bacon, and then beat it well. Cover and put in the refrigerator overnight. You CAN use it right away, but it’s much better if left overnight for the ingredients to blend together and enhance the tastes.
Thoroughly wash the fresh spinach and remove stems. Pat the leaves dry and refrigerate until you’re ready to serve it.
To serve the spinach salad, first tear the spinach into bite-sized pieces and arrange on salad plates. Pour just enough of the dressing mixture to coat the leaves. Don’t use too much! Sprinkle chopped hard boiled eggs over the top of each salad, then sprinkle the crumbled bacon over each salad. Serve immediately.
