Boiled egg bacon and mushroom salad – very easy to put together, fresh and nutritious.
Happy Monday! How was everyone’s weekend?
Salads shouldn’t be boring ! But I have a problem, when there is a salad I like, I usually can’t get enough of it! This happened with the salad I’m sharing today.
You know how much I love light and easy meals, so I’m constantly looking for new recipe ideas. Looking through a very old book, I stumbled upon this salad. It is nothing special, but I love the combination of flavors. Perfect for lunch or a side salad.
The original recipe calls for baby spinach, but I made it with mixed greens. It worked, but you can still use spinach if you prefer.
The sautéed mushrooms bring a lot of flavor and of course meatiness.
And the dressing is simple – oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and some Worcestershire sauce. It can’t get any better. This is one of the easiest, most delicious salads, I’ve ever made!
Hope you like it!
