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.
