Spinach Salad

This salad is almost a meal unto itself.  Try warming the bacon dressing. This recipe will produce a large salad, cut recipe in half if serving for a dinner side.

1 bag of fresh baby spinach, washed and dried

1 bag of regular large leaf spinach, washed, coarse stems removed and broken into coarse pieces

1/3 red onion cut thinly into rings

1 1/2 cup fresh sliced white button mushrooms

3 hard boiled eggs chopped

1/3 cup garbanzo beans

1 small (2oz.) can sliced black olives, drained

1 small can French Fried onions

Hot Bacon Salad Dressing – readily available in most supermarkets

Place the spinach in a large salad bowl and toss to combine.  Add all the remaining ingredients in a layering effect.  To serve: if placing on a buffet, just leave the salad as is, it makes a colorful presentation and guests will toss lightly their serving.  Serve the dressing on the side, warmed.  If serving at the table toss with the dressing and serve immediately.
