Wilted Spinach Salad With Bacon Dressing

Scrumptious!  I was suspicious of the dressing which was made from beaten egg, 2 types of vinegar and sugar but it was really good.  I’d been craving something GREEN after grazing on all the leftovers from the party  (predominantly yellow food like cheese and eggs). This did the trick alright.  It was really tasty.  I used a 260g bag of spinach, half the oil but kept all the other ingredients the same.  I scoffed half and will take half for lunch tomorrow.  Aint I thrifty?!

I’ve been waiting for the phone to ring and now it is 10pm.  So I guess I’m not going out dancing tonight after all…  No matter.  I’m watching “Party Girl” with Douglas Fairbanks Junior so that’s keeping me amused.

Recipe from: Cooking Price-Wise.

    I used to have this recipe but now can’t find it. Any chance I could get a copy? We used to have dinner parties with friends who prepared dishes from the 1965 Vincent Price book A Treasury of Great Recipes. So good!
