Low Carb Salads: Face Planting into a Bacon Egg Spinach Salad
This salad is currently my favorite and I don't even like spinach! Yet I want to face plant into the salad bowl like I'm a competitive eater every time I make it.
It's a sweet-salty-savory salad. The dressing is a homemade French. This is an excellent main dish salad (add more eggs and bacon) as well as pot luck dish.
The recipe is originally from my step-grandmother, a lovely woman who has a large collection of vintage recipes. After much distraught begging on my part, she finally sent me the recipe from one of her 1950s era cookbooks.
And I am sharing it with you.
You don't even have to beg!
I know there are other versions of this salad on the internet, but I could not find the exact recipe so I think this is the first time this particular combination of ingredients has appeared on the web. This is also why you must try this salad, it's like nothing you've ever had before.
Go on. Experience the urge to face plant in a bowl of lettuce. I dare you.
