Wilted Spinach Salad
3 lbs fresh spinach
6 slices bacon
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 cup cider vinegar
freshly ground pepper
Wash and stem spinach, dry, and place in a serving bowl. Chop onion.
Cook bacon until crisp, remove from pan, and crumble into bits.
Discard all but 2 Tbsp bacon fat; add onion, and cook until just
soft. Add sugar, salt, mustard, and vinegar. Heat until sugar is
dissolved, pour over spinach, grind pepper over, toss and garnish
with crumbled bacon bits.
If you like a thicker dressing that coats the leaves use 2 tsp.
cornstarch mixed in with the sugar. Or mix together 1 egg and the
sugar. Don't do both or the final dressing will be too thick.
