This spinach salad with bacon and eggs and a tangy garlicky dressing is sure to be a new favorite in your house. Quick, easy, and bursting with flavor!
This salad takes spinach to a whole new level. Trust me on this. And the dressing is quick and very simple.
This recipe makes a filling meal for one or you can split it into two side salads.
I first had this salad at my husband’s friend’s house, and one day I had to watch him make it so I could replicate it.
He uses artificial bacon bits, which is still tasty, but real bacon really makes this salad special.
I always request this salad when we go over there, and when I’m not lazy, I make it at home myself.
You might not want to eat this the night before a big job interview, and I caution against reducing the garlic – it is so good with the full two cloves 🙂
How to make this simple spinach salad dressing
Whisk together the mayo, sour cream, balsamic vinegar, garlic, and salt & pepper until you’ve got a smooth and delicious mixture. Refrigerate until needed.
The dressing is pretty heavy, so you definitely want to add it to the salad just prior to eating it.
