Spinach Salad with Bacon, Egg, and Mushrooms

Print Friendly and PDF

This is my favourite spinach salad.

I particularly love the garlicky dressing, which I've used on other salads in the past too...mmm.  It's a Best of Bridge recipe that my mom has been serving since I was a kid.  I hope she never stops.

This blog post comes from a previous post about a bacon-themed supper club night that The Hubby and I did with some friends.  I want it to be that night again right now.  If you want to read the full blog post about Bacon Night, click here to go back to that page.  Otherwise, enjoy...

  1. Hi Megan, I just wanted to say thank you for posting this. My Mom used to make this all the time and I wanted to make it for a barbecue tomorrow but I don't have the recipe. My Mom passed away last year and all her recipe books were gone when I got to Calgary to arrange her funeral. I was going to bring that actual cookbook home. Value your time with your Mom and give her a hug for me since my Mom isn't around any more!

    Regards,
    Jack

    1. Isn't it funny/great how food can conjure up memories of loved ones? I'm so glad that you found this recipe here! The Best of Bridge cookbooks were the source of most of our dinners when I was growing up. I appreciate every moment with my mom and will give her a hug for you. Thanks for commenting Jack! Happy holidays. :)
