Straw's' StoryI have made this very salad many times, it is sooooo good. So I changed the name and added pix.
I love baby spinach in salads, and fruit just adds to the flavor.
Then using garlic from my garden is a plus.
Now add the vinaigrrette...oh my!!!
I've added an option to use strawberries and pecans (along with all the other ingredients) instead of the mandrain orange segments.
Just give it a try, either option, I think you'll like it, I sure do.
bunches fresh baby spinach
bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
hard boiled eggs, shredded
fresh mushrooms, sliced
fresh lime juice
extra virgin olive oil
garlic cloves, minced
red onion, thinly sliced
avocado, cut in wedges
OPTIONS: FRESH STRAWBERRIES & PECANS INSTEAD OF THE ORANGE SEGMENTS
1Remove the spinach stems.
Wash the spinach gently and pat dry with paper towels.
Sprinkle the bacon, eggs and mushrooms over the top of the spinach.
Combine all of the dressing ingredients and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Just before serving, gently toss the salad with the dressing.
Garnish with mandarin oranges, onion and avocado.
I also like to make this salad, exchanging the orange segments for fresh strawberry slices and pecans.
