2006!?! How could I possibly have missed this one! Lunch is always an obstacle and this is an amazingly satisfying solution. Thank you for this one!

Your welcome! It definitely my favorite salad because it doesn't taste like a diet salad. Glad you liked it!

Can I just say (OMG) this was awesome!!!
I had bacon and a very boring iceberg lettuce.
And it was the best dressing/salad I have had in a long time. Thank you so much
5Scat4me for posting such and easy and wonderful recipe.

I've been eating every salad I've made for weeks with mayo,vinegar and stevia. So similar to the ingredients. Its so good tastes a lot like miracle whip to me which is what I always liked on salads before.

I will have to try this whole recipe it looks so good. I could live off this salad everyday!

Do you serve it warm?

Is it good cold the next day if you have leftovers?

It isn't really warm when you eat it (just yummy!). We eat any leftover the next day and it's still good. However, there's never much left over

When I was a little girl, I grew up on grandma's german potato salad. I loved it. I made this salad tonight and it reminded me of those days. It was delicious and easy to do. THANKS for a new favorite!!

5Cats4me Your salad.

We had tonight, and I added Linda Sue's avocado.
My gosh my husband Jay told me 4 times how much he liked the
salad. He said you can make it tomorrow. I made it for 4 portions
and I had one. The salad is gone. That must say something about it
to you. Thanks mucho.

Count DH and me in as converts. We're generally not too crazy about sweet-ish main dishes, but this was very good. I had some leftover chicken that I added as well. BTW, I find it less mess and very convenient to cook two pounds of bacon at one time. I leave the strips a somewhat underdone, drain on paper towels, and put in zip lock bag, which I freeze. I pour the cooled grease into a covered container that goes into the fridge. It's easy to take a few slices from the bag and finish cooking/crisping in the microwave or toaster oven. Thanks, 5cats.

If you want a low cal/low fat no carb sweet spinach salad dressing along these lines you can use SF Maple syrup (Walden Farms is sweetened with Splenda, no sugar alcohols) with equal part vinegar (I use champagne vinegar which seems to be less acidic than most), add some dijon mustard and perhaps a touch of SF raspberry syrup (from Monin or DaVinci). Add bacon or use Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits for extra flavor. No extra sweetener or mayo is needed -- the Maple Syrup is sweet enough (and thick enough to hold the dressing on the leaves nicely.)

Hey, the lower the dressing stats, the more liberally I pour the stuff on -- I admit to being a dressing guzzler, and with this dressing I can eat my soup. . . uh, I mean salad (!). . . guilt-free.

Farley – that is what I am doing too! It’s a great quick lunch. I keep a cup of bacon grease in the fridge along with all my fixins ready to go and it literally takes just a minute to zap the grease and mix the dressing then toss with the salad. I love it with a side of cold roasted chicken or any leftover meat really.

My favorite mix is:
Baby spinach
Toasted pine nuts
Halved cherry tomatoes
Cheddar cheese cubes
Boiled eggs
Chopped bacon
