"This was a good salad, but I would make a few changes: first, my husband said there was too much dressing, so I would cut the dressing ingredients in half. Also, I used packaged pre-shredded cheese, which made it much too salty, something I've noticed before - shred fresh from a block of cheese. Save 1-2 of the hard-boiled eggs to garnish the top of the salad. I did add chopped fresh pineapple chunks layered with the ham - the sweetness contrasted very well with the saltiness of the bacon. However, I suggest draining the pineapple well on paper towels first so that excess liquid from them doesn't ruin the salad's texture. I used a medium package of baby spinach, which was plenty - I don't think 16 cups is necessary unless perhaps you're using the regular, torn up."
