Menu Mondays - SPINACH SALAD!

Yummier than you think! (Not actual photo... just to show some spinach!)

I love this salad! It's fresh and very tasty. I usually make it for bridal or baby showers and parties. It's one that you'll like to make any time of the year.

1 bag fresh spinich (baby spinich works really well)
1 head iceberg or romaine lettuce
1 pkg bacon (or faster: 1 sm bag pre-cooked bacon bits)
1/2 pkg jack or swiss cheese (regular or pre-grated)
optional: sliced mushrooms

Wash and tear the spinich as needed. Wash and tear the lettuce. But both into a big serving bowl.
Cook bacon and crumble into bits. Add to the bowl once cooled. Grate the cheese to amount desired. Add to the bowl.

1/2c white or apple-cider vinegar (I prefer ac vin)
3/4c veg or canola oil
1 1/2 T onion (grated or onion powder will do, but just 1/2t if so)
1 1/2t salt
3/4t dry mustard

Combine all ingredients in a blender or shaker mixing well. Pour over salad and toss when ready to serve.
