Bonita's Spinach Salad

I got a request for the salad dressing recipe from Halloween Night. This is from Tristan's Aunt Bonita, who always brings yummy food to their family get-togethers. The dressing is a variation of the old Russian dressing, which is actually an American invention from the late 1800s/early 1900s. In this variation, canola oil is used instead of mayonnaise, so you can tell yourself it's healthier. Here's the whole salad recipe in case you want to serve some greens with the dressing :-)

Bonita's Spinach Salad

Blend dressing ingredients in a 16oz mason jar, 1 day ahead, to let flavors meld:
  • 1/2 onion or shallots, minced
  • 1/3 c ketchup
  • 2 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 c white vinegar
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 c canola oil
For the salad, combine in large bowl:
  • Baby spinach
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, sliced
  • mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • bean sprouts
  • bacon, crumbled (we use soy bacon bits)
Toss with dressing and serve immediately.

Extra dressing can be refrigerated for 2-3 days.
