Crunchy bean sprouts and water chestnuts add texture to this familiar favorite.


  • 4 slices bacon
  • 12 cups stemmed, washed and dried fresh spinach
  • 1 cup very thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 can (8 ounces) water chestnuts, drained, rinsed and coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups mung bean sprouts
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • Sweet & Sour Dressing (see recipe link)
  • 1 hard-cooked egg, peeled and coarsely chopped (see Tip)

Companion recipe: Sweet & Sour Dressing


Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp, turning occasionally, about 7 minutes. Drain on paper towels and coarsely crumble.

Toss spinach, onion, water chestnuts, sprouts and mushrooms in a large bowl. Toss with dressing and divide among 6 plates. Sprinkle egg and bacon on top. Serve immediately.

Tip: To hard-cook eggs, place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and run a constant stream of cold water over the eggs until completely cooled.
