One of my favorite salads

Actually all of us LOVE this salad except for Grace.  You can find it in the 2008 UPPC MOPS cookbook on page 22-23, compliments of my lovely dear friend Lorina.

Spinach Salad:
1/2 C slivered almonds, toasted and optional
1/2 lb of bacon or bacon bits
3 green onions, diced finely
2 chopped apples, i slice mine thinly

1/4 C oil
3 T tarragon vinegar
1/4 C sugar or less
1/2 t dry mustard
1/8 t salt
Whisk together and let it chill in the fridge before serving.

I omit the almonds only because the littles don't care for
them but they do taste yummy if you decide to add them in.

Freshly washed 'pre-washed' spinach. :-)
Am i the only nut that goes through the spinach bag/container
and picks out the leaves that are not thick and chewy?

Makings for the dressing.  I do make this a head of time and
it keeps for several days in the fridge. 

I like Fuji apples in our salad.
Note: Slice apples before onions.  Even though they will
be combined, it still tastes best when your apples taste
like apples and not onions. :-)

I like big pieces of bacon in my salad but don't like cooking
it so i cheat and buy the precooked from Costco.  Also i
improvised with thinly sliced red onions tonight since i
did not have green, they are just as tasty!
