Dutch Spinach Salad

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.

Makes

4 servings

This dressing can also be served hot on wilted lettuce, or adapted for potato salad or coleslaw. My grandmother, mother and aunts made this Pennsylvania Dutch treat, and I'm happy to pass it on for others to enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 bacon strips, diced
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • Water
  • 4 cups torn spinach greens
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • hard-boiled large eggs, sliced

Directions

  1. In a small frying pan, cook bacon until crisp. Do not drain. In a 1-cup measure, place egg, sugar, vinegar and enough water to measure 3/4 cup; pour over bacon and grease.
  2. Cook and stir until dressing thickness. Season to taste. Pour hot dressing over greens and onion. Toss; garnish with egg slices. Serve immediately.
