:pw Wilted Spinach Salad
Entry in :pw Salad Contest.
Ingredients:

5 ounces fresh spinach leaves
1/2 medium red onion
8 slices bacon
4 Tablespoons bacon drippings
4 Tablespoons wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon sugar
3 large boiled eggs

Instructions:

Put spinach into serving bowl.
Top with sliced onion.
Fry bacon until crisp.
Remove from pan.
Cut or crumble into small pieces.
Mix 4 Tablespoons bacon drippings, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, brown sugar, and white sugar in a saucepan; let simmer until most of the foam disappears.
Add bacon.
Pour dressing over spinach leaves and red onions.
Cover until spinach leaves are slightly wilted.
Garnish with hard boiled eggs.
Serve at once.
Caution: Be sure the spinach is not cold or the bacon drippings will congeal and the salad loses its appeal. Consider using vegetable oil instead if you have to use cold spinach.
