I put quartered hard boiled eggs on top of spinach.
Then, in a small bowl I add red wine vinegar with a little bit of dijon mustard, whisk, then add alittle salt and ground black pepper, whisk, then while whisking, add some light olive oil til
smooth.
Finally, I add a good handful of just made crumbled bacon and stir. Then pour on spinach/egg. Maybe add alittle sprinkling of grated parmesan or romano.
I have also been known to add crumbled blue cheese or feta with the spinach and egg, just to use leftovers.

I like a basic Italian dressing on my spinach salad.

My very favorite this time of year is a hot bacon vinaigrette.

I also like to use mandarin or blood oranges in spinach salad, and then I would use an orange vinaigrette.

Hmmmm you're giving me ideas for tonight's dinner!

I do tbsp of soy sauce, tbsp of lemon juice, lots of pepper and about 1/3 cup EVOO. My spinach salad has hard boiled egg and grated mozza on it too. (Do you eat egg?)

The other one I like is spinach, sliced strawberries, toasted pecans with a red onion vinaigrette. Very tasty. Sadly, no pecans in my house for a long time with allergic kiddos. WAAAA!
