Spinach Salad

This recipe for Spinach Salad came from my sister. She used to own a little cafe and people would clamor for the recipe for the dressing. She wouldn't give it out. But she gave it to ME! Now that the cafe is closed, I feel she wouldn't mind if I published it.

I had planned on taking a picture of Hannah making the dressing, but I decided to shoot some impromptu video. It's not great, but hey, don't watch if you don't want to.

I filled the memory card on the camera before I finished the video. Oh well. We topped some lovely spinach with bacon, hard cooked eggs, red onion, and mushrooms and drizzled the dressing over the top. One of my favorites!  Hannah's, too!

Aunt Joy's Spinach Salad
1/2 c vegetable oil
1/4 c wine vinegar
1/4 c sugar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp dried minced onion
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp poppy seeds

We also made Roasted Garlic Pesto with shrimp and linguine. Really good. I pan-seared the shrimp instead of just sauteing them. I like the nice brown crust pan searing gives shrimp. Maybe that'll be my next video.
