I’m not sure where this recipe originated. I only know that my mom would make this recipe for the family and we would DEVOUR it. I mean seriously, it has bacon on it!

My kids love this salad too, and I love that they are eating a whole bowl of spinach! The dressing can be made in advance to let the flavors mingle. You also may have leftover dressing, which happens in our house because my husband and a couple of my kids only like a little bit drizzled on their salads. But don’t worry, this dressing is delicious on ANY salad. It’s also great on pasta too. For a quick lunch, I have cut up some fresh veggies, added cold pasta and drizzled this dressing on top! YUM.
