Pennsylvania Dutch Dressing
Usually at our house I use spinach fresh in big green salads or on sandwiches instead of lettuce. Several of the kids really like creamed spinach, so I make that too. The Pennsylvania Dutch make a hot bacon dressing that they most often pour over dandelion greens. I like to have it over spinach. This recipe is the "real deal" and it's worth a try.
