Quick and Delicious: Dressing for Spinach Salad

Spinach growing in a pot

If it’s getting warmer where you live, salads are starting to sound better and better as a cool, quick meal.  This is a sweet and tangy dressing recipe that I got from a dear friend while I was living with her family on the other side of the world from “home.”

The flavors go well with fresh spinach.  Toss in a hard boiled egg, some walnuts or pecans, and any other fresh veggies that you have on had (cucumbers, carrots, mushrooms…) and you’ve got a great spring dinner.

Dressing for Spinach Salad

  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup vegetable or olive oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar (although I used 1/2 cup last time I made it and liked it just as well)
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup vinegar (white or red cider)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

Combine all ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake well until combined.  Store in the refrigerator.
