Spinach Salad with Petee’s Yummy Dressing
Posted by Gail | Filed under Gail Cooks!
Spinach salad is one of my favs no matter what time of the year it is. When I can get beautiful strawberries, I add them. If mangos are available, I substitute those. When I have caramelized peanuts, I throw them in. Or I add chopped almonds or walnuts. If I need a hit of protein, I add a boiled egg. Often I add dried cranberries. Sometimes bacon. Sometimes figs and goats cheese.
When I’m having a party, I’ll make up a batch of this dressing to go on top (though not with the figs and goats cheese, for that I use a lighter dressing.) And whenever I’ve served this dressing everyone wants the recipe. I hand it out willingly. After all, Petee was lovely enough to share it with me. Enjoy!
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp celery salt
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup wine videgar
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 cup salad oil
Blend all the ingredients but the oil. Add the oil slowly so the dressing emulsifies.
- Baby spinach
- Boiled egg, sliced
- Grape tomatoes
- 3 strips of bacon fried crisp and crumbled
- Mushrooms, sliced
- Strawberries, sliced
- Walnuts (candied or otherwise)
Toss all the ingredients just before serving.
