Tossed Spinach Salad

From-scratch French-style dressing is a bold topping that suits the hearty ingredients in this salad. When I make it to share at a get-together, I never have any left over. I take the salad and dressing in disposable containers and come home happily empty-handed. -Myra Innes, Auburn, Kansas

    Took this today to a picnic and it was the hit of all the food. It was sooo good! I made 3 minor changes: I added an extra egg, omitted the salt and sprinkled about a tablespoon of dried minced onion flakes into the jar of dressing instead of bothering with the green onions. This recipe makes a lot of dressing. I personally like a lot of dressing on my salad but.........Do NOT pour all this dressing onto the salad at once. I only poured about 1/2 of the jar on and it was a little too much, I thought. If I had poured it all on, I would have been serving spinach salad soup! The dressing is delicious so keep any leftover for another salad.
