I’m still looking for creative ways to use up those extra hard-boiled Easter eggs, and this delicious salad is one of my favorite go-to recipes for a quick but delicious salad. I’ve lightened the recipe a bit by substituting turkey bacon for the “real” stuff, and decreasing the amount of oil added to the dressing. But even this version packs a lot of flavor. I really love this light vinaigrette dressing, and use it on other salads as well, but it tastes especially good with the flavor combination of eggs, Parmesan cheese and bacon.
Start with some fresh spinach and fresh lemon:
- 1 pound fresh spinach
- 6 slices crisp turkey bacon (cut into ½ inch pieces before frying)
- 2 hard-boiled eggs
- ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- Lemon Vinaigrette
- ⅓ cup canola oil or extra virgin olive oil1 teaspoon fresh minced garlic
- ¼ cup vinegar
- ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Dash pepper
- Wash and trim spinach; tear into pieces and put in large salad bowl. Combine vinaigrette ingredients and chill in refrigerator for one hour to blend flavors. Toss spinach with dressing, then garnish with eggs and turkey bacon. Makes 6 servings.
