This healthy, leafy salad is accented with bacon, hard-cooked eggs, bean sprouts, water chestnuts and an easy homemade dressing. It was a hit when I served it at the National Spinach Conference last year.


  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • SALAD:
  • 1 pound fresh baby spinach
  • 1 can (14 ounces) bean sprouts, drained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 2 hard-boiled large eggs, sliced
  • 1/4 cup real bacon bits


  1. In a bowl, whisk the sugar, vinegar, ketchup, oil and Worcestershire sauce. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, bean sprouts, water chestnuts, onions and eggs. Just before serving, whisk the dressing and pour over salad; toss to coat. Sprinkle with bacon.
