Melody's Spinach Salad

I was going through a notebook of recipes and came across this one that my friend Melody often brought to events with our friends and at church. She has since moved away, so I am so grateful that she shared this recipe with me! It's so good, and I am super excited because it's MSPI-friendly!

Melody's Spinach Salad

1 cup vegetable oil (canola, safflower or olive oil, but not extra virgin)
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/3 cup cider vinegar
3 bags baby spinach
6 crisp strips of bacon, crumbled
5 mushrooms, sliced
1 bunch green onions, sliced (use white parts only)

Whisk together oil, sugar, salt and dry mustard. Slowly add in vinegar. Set dressing aside and allow it to set up.

Toss together salad ingredients. Add salad dressing immediately before serving -- you may not need all of the dressing.
