THE Salad

I have a standing rule: no salads at my parties. This is the one exception. Cathy happily brings this always requested salad to complete the perfect menu. Seriously, this salad is so good…I like to call it the UN salad. We all know that salads are always best when someone else makes it. Her husband continues to brag on this salad after many years!

2 bags of fresh spinach
6 hard-boiled eggs, sliced
1/2 lb. of bacon, crumbled (best if not too crumbly)
Croutons

Dressing:

Place the following ingredients in a blender and blend well:

1 medium onion chopped fine
2/3 c. sugar
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1 t. celery seed
3 t. mustard
1/2 c. white vinegar
1/2 c. oil (canola or sunflower)

Assemble the salad, just prior to dinner. Add the dressing to the lettuce a little at a time until fully coated, but not drenched. Add the eggs and bacon. Sprinkle croutons on top.
