Every Tuesday there is a “Laiki agora” (farmers’ market) near my house so when I went last week, it was not in my plans to buy spinach but then I saw a stall with really nice and tender spinach. I bought some spinach to make spanakopita and when I washed the spinach, I separated and kept aside all the small tender leaves to make a salad.
In the salad dressing I used my own home made pesto, which again I have not found the time to post and maybe I shall make a post for all my pestos. It was delicious.
Spinach salad with eggs and red sweet roasted peppers
Serves: 4 – 6
4 lean slices of bacon (when on diet I use smoked turkey)
8 cups of baby spinach
1 – 2 green onions, finely chopped
1 – 2 roasted Florinis red peppers
1οο grams feta or graviera
2 hard boiled eggs, cut into slices
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
Balsamic salad dressing:
1 clove garlic
1/4 tablespoon salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon Greek honey
1/2 – 1 teaspoon Greek oregano
Put all the salad dressing ingredients in a food processor and mix.
In a non stick frying pan saute the bacon, without oil and then place on kitchen paper to absorb any fat. Cut into small pieces.
Place the spinach, basil, bacon, peppers, cheese and onion in a big bowl. Add as much salad dressing as you like and toss well. Put the eggs on top and serve.
