Catalina Spinach Salad Recipe
My husband enjoys this colorful crisp salad. The tangy homemade dressing is economical and easy to fix. The crunch of chow mein noodles and water chestnuts blends nicely with the chopped eggs and crumbled bacon. -Joyce Cutbirth, Meridian, Idaho

We really enjoyed the crunchy texture of this salad. I chop the waterchestnuts and I use bacon pieces after I have trimmed all of the fat and chopped it before cooking. Great dressing.
