Spinach Salad - Our way!

This is one of my favourite salads. We used to have it often when I lived at home, and I still love to make it as a quick and delicious side for lunch or dinner.  I made it twice in one week recently since we love it so much!

I started a garden this year, so I was lucky enough to have some fresh spinach available for this salad. That is, I had fresh spinach available until my dogs discovered that what grew in that particular area was edible!

The spinach is topped with sliced mushrooms, crumbled bacon, a sliced hard-boiled egg,a little bit of grated cheddar, and finished off with a drizzle of French dressing. I have yet to find a great home-made French dressing, so we still use the tasty Kraft version :)

And Voila! A delicious family favourite.  I hope you give it a try and love it as much as my family does!

This recipe makes 6 side salads.  Recipe source? My folks!
