Simple Classic Spinach Salad Recipes

Classic Spinach Salad

Somehow I can never get enough of this old favorite. I love spinach in salads and frequently combine small tender leaves with other types of greens, both for color and flavor. But this classic combination is still the one I prepare whenever I grill a thick sirloin steak. I might also include a souffle baked potato on the plate.

Makes 6 servings

  • 2 pounds types of greens spinach, stemmed and dried

  • 6 large white mushrooms, stems trimmed, thinly sliced

  • 3 hard cooked large eggs, peeled and quartered

  • 1/4 pound thick sliced bacon, fried until crisp, drained on paper towels, and crumbled

  • 1/2 cup crumbled Roquefort cheese (optional, but recommended)

  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoons Dijon style mustard

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

  1. Pile the types of greens spinach in a large chilled salad bowl. Top with the mushrooms slices. Arrange the egg wedges on top. Sprinkle with the crumble bacon and the cheese if using.

  2. In a small bowl, beat together the vinegar and mustard. Season well with salt and pepper. Beat in the olive oil. Just be fore serving, pour some of the dressing over the salad and toss. Serve this simple salad recipes with the remaining dressing on the side.

Variation: toss half a medium size bunch watercress, timed, along with a little thinly sliced sweet onion into the salad before adding the dressing.
