spinach salad with poppy seed dressing

When it's my turn to bring a salad, this is a yummy alternative to a boring bowl of iceberg lettuce.

1 bunch spinach {1-2 bags baby spinach}
1 head lettuce {1-2 bags iceberg lettuce}
6 strips bacon, cooked & crumbled
2 hard boiled eggs
1-2 cups swiss cheese {depending on how many you're serving... and how much you love swiss cheese}, grated
*in the picture, I didn't have a boiled egg handy. I also added craisins.

1/2 Cup red wine vinegar
1/2 Cup vegetable oil
1/2 Cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp poppy seeds
3/4 tsp dry mustard
{combine all & shake well}

Combine spinach & lettuce in a large bowl. Apply dressing just before serving. Top with bacon, boiled eggs & cheese.

Tip: For a lower-fat dressing, try 3/4 Cup vinegar & 1/4 Cup oil.

Serves: 8+
Time: about 20 minutes if eggs are already boiled & chilled.
