Red Onion Salad

My kid loves salad.  She buys bagged salad at the store and bottled Italian dressing and eats it about 3 times a day.  Never mind the fact that she knows how to make all kinds of homemade dressings and vinaigrettes.  Typical kid, that would be too much trouble.  She will however, come RUNNING if there is any kind of salad for dinner.  Especially this one which contains her other two favorite ingredients:  bacon and hard-boiled eggs.  I have to admit the rest of us enjoyed it too.  Our little family of three managed to polish off a giant salad bowl of this stuff.  It's kind of a take on a wilted spinach salad, with the hot bacon dressing.  Only the salad doesn't get wilted and the dressing isn't hot.  What it is, is oh so good!
Leafy green salad with lots of egg, bacon and
red onion.  Yum!
