"Clinks" Spinach Salad

With prom coming up this weekend, one night at family dinner, we were discussing all the different places that everyone would be going to for prom dinner.  My husband and I started reminiscing and talking about "back in the day".  His high school had prom at a hotel and a sit down dinner was served in the banquet room, before the actual prom dance.

I was telling them about a "fancy" restaurant that we used to go to (remember this was in Alaska)'s a mouthful, so hang in there with me on this one..."Clinkerdagger Bickerstaff and Petts".

They were known for their complimentary brown bread, pewter dishes and Steak Pottage Soup along with their Fried Zucchini and Cheese Sauce.  I would actually pay serious money to get that Zucchini/Sauce recipes.  I have searched all over the internet and it doesn't exist.

I even worked there for about a year after high school and yes, I wore the Paul Revere uniform as shown in photo above...and I rocked it!

"Clinks", as we all affectionately called it was also known for their Spinach Salad.  I did actually find their recipe on the if I could just get my hands on their Zucchini!!!

1 bunch spinach leaves
2 green onions, sliced
3 hard boiled eggs
1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded (not the grated powder stuff)
2 Tbl sliced almonds
1 Tbl bacon bits
3 Tbl cider vinegar
3 Tbl sugar
1/2 tsp prepared Dijon mustard
4 ounces sliced button mushrooms (I added this to the recipe, for our own tastes)

Wash spinach thoroughly. Spin or blot dry and tear into bite-sized pieces.

Chop egg (whites) only.

For dressing, in separate dish mash egg (yolks), vinegar, sugar, and mustard, whisk together.

Put all salad ingredients in a large bowl.  Pour dressing on top.  Toss and serve on chilled plates (like "Clinks" used to).
