What kind of dressing for my spinach salad (no bacon)?


Recommended Posts

I have a dream of making a fresh spinach salad topped with either grapefruit or tangerine sections and some red onion.  What kind of dressing should I make to go with it?  I don't have any compliant bacon, so please don't suggest that.  Thanks in advance!

My sister-in-law makes an amazing orange dressing. I bet it would be perfect!


-1 medium-large Navel orange, zestd and juiced - you should have about 1/3 c juice)
-1 shallot (finely diced or minced)
-1/4 cup vinegar of choice (champagne or rice wine vinegar are top notch)
-1 tbsp Dijon mustard (make sure it's compliant)
- pinch of salt to taste
-fresh cracked blk pepper to taste
-1/2 cup EVOO

Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl then whisk EVOO into bowl. Enjoy!

I made some with a cup of EVOO, 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar, 2 cloves of garlic, about a tsp of rosemary leaves, a tsp of thyme, two dates, maybe a tablespoon of almond slivers. I put it all in my Vitamix and blended it well. I like a creamier dressing, and this was close enough for me. My husband liked it, too.
