My FaVoRiTE Summer Salad


If you are looking for something to make for dinner or to take to your next BBQ look no further- I'm going to share my most absolute Favorite Summertime salad with you. We have a neighborhood party tonight & have been assigned to bring a salad & I'm making it! 
{even though we just had it for Father's Day on Sunday} 
The reason I adore this salad is it is so fresh & goes well with grilled chicken, steaks or just burgers & hot dogs. 
{It's a Quigley family favorite!} 

Spinach-Mushroom Salad
1 bunch Spinach {washed, spun dry & torn into bite sized pieces} 
1 head of Red Leaf Lettuce {Wash, dry & tear up also}

3/4 lb. sliced Mushrooms 

3/4 lb. grated Swiss Cheese 

1 lb. container of Cottage Cheese {drained, & added to salad right before dressing.  I usually dump into a colander & rinse with cold water & then set aside} 

3/4 lb. Bacon {crisp & crumbled up} 
--Toss all Salad ingredients into a pretty bowl to serve & set aside.  This does make a good sized salad so make sure you put it in a big enough bowl. 

 {*I like to make this a bit ahead of time so all the ingredients can sit together & the flavors can really develop} 
1 Tbsp. Poppy Seeds 
1/3 C. White Vinegar 
1/3 C. Sugar
3/4 C. Vegetable Oil 
1 Red Onion {thinly sliced & cut into half moon shapes}
1/2 tsp. Salt 
1/2 tsp. Dry Mustard 

Prepare dressing & pour over salad right before serving.  Toss well & Enjoy! 

I'll love to hear from you if you try it & like it.
Have a wonderful night!!

This salad was so yummy the other day. I was going to ask for the recipe. Too bad I didn't get any bacon because AJQ was all over it. :)
