Springtime Spinach Salad
Triple play-our dressing seasons the croutons, flavors the onions, and yes, dresses the salad.
Why This Recipe Works
We took common ingredients like olive oil, salt, red wine vinegar, mustard, and minced thyme and garlic, and combined them to create a flavorful dressing for our Springtime Spinach Salad. Raw onions and unflavored croutons seemed a little lackluster for this salad. We used a little dressing to sauté the onions, and tossed the croutons with dressing before baking them. Rather than slicing or quartering the hard-boiled eggs, we opted instead to grate the whites and the yolks separately into small, uniform yellow and white pieces that contrasted nicely with the deep green spinach.
