Summer Salads, Part 9

Wow. We really did make a lot of new kinds of salads this summer, didn't we? Why is food so good?! Why are there so many amazing combinations of food?! Oh, and my apologies, but I can't find my picture for this one. I'll post it later when I find it, or we will make this again and post the picture then.

The Best Spinach Salad


4 slices bacon
3/4 pound fresh spinach
2 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
2 tablespoons sweet onion, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped raw almonds
1 tablespoon raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


Arrange bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon on paper towels and crumble.

Layer spinach, bacon, eggs, and onion in a large bowl. Sprinkle with almonds and sunflower seeds. Whisk vegetable oil, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt, and black pepper in a bowl; pour over spinach mixture and toss. Serve immediately.
