Mom knew how to get us kids to eat our vegetables! This lovely salad combines spinach, tomatoes, red onion and bacon, served with a creamy homemade dressing. It's a classic side dish we've enjoyed for years. —Jeanne Voss

Bean sprouts, bacon crumbles and sunflower kernels lend a pleasant crunch to my mom's refreshing version of spinach salad. The tangy oil-and-vinegar dressing coats the mixture well. Mom will sometimes add a few radish slices for color.
To switch things up, when I have fresh lettuce from the garden, I'll use that in place of spinach...and occasionally, I toss in broccoli instead of cauliflower.—Sherry Horton, Sioux Falls, South Dakota
