I left out the bean sprouts, as I did not have any on hand.

This salad recipe turned out so well, and I had left over rhubarb salad dressing, so I made it again the following day for dinner ... my husband loved it!

6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbles or purchased "bacon bits"

Directions

In a pan, over medium heat, cook the rhubarb, sugar and the vinegar until the rhubarb is tender, about 8 minutes. Stir often to avoid sticking and burning.

Drain the rhubarb mixture, reserving about 7 tbsp. of the juice and discard the pulp.

Transfer the 7 tbsp. of rhubarb juice to a jar or another container with a tight-fitting lid, and add the oil, grated onion, Worcestershire Sauce, and the salt.

Shake well, and then refrigerate the dressing for at least one hour.

Just before serving, combine all other salad ingredients in a large bowl.

Add the rhubarb salad dressing, and toss to coat.

Serve from the large salad bowl, or transfer to 6 - 8 individual salad bowls.

Add cotons, optional.

Serves 6 - 8.

Enjoy this amazing healthy, Rhubarb Spinach Salad!
