Bacon Blue Cheese Mushroom Spinach Salad Recipe
I had this salad at a restaurant one night and couldn't stop raving about it. The updated dressing nicely coats the lettuce, while bacon, mushrooms, blue cheese, walnuts and eggs add extra interest.—Dolores Brigham, Inglewood, California
- 8 bacon strips, diced
- 1-1/2 cups thinly sliced fresh mushrooms
