Vintage Fiesta and Spinach Salad for Foodie Friday

Welcome to another meal with all the participants over at Michael Lee's Designs By Gollum.
It's time for our favorite Foodie Friday!

Tonight it's a simple Spinach Salad.....again with no real recipe, just tasty ingredients
that you probably have on hand.  Chill a nice bottle of your favorite wine, slice some
San Francisco sour dough bread, mix up some old fashioned bacon and balsamic
dressing.  It's a meal!

Our spinach salad consists of baby spinach with an old fashioned bacon/balsamic
vinegar/fresh lemon juice/garlic dressing. Crumbled bacon, freshly grated parmesan
cheese, and sliced hard boiled eggs are added before the salad is dressed. Additional
toppings like diced onions, pine nuts, and chopped peppers and cucumbers, plus extra
dressing is served on the relish tray in the center of the table. Add that glass of wine
and some sour dough bread and I'm in heaven.

The Dishes: Vintage chop plates used as chargers, dinner plates,
and Tricolator bowls are the perfect size for the salad.

The large chop plate holds a Manhattan Relish Tray for additional toppings for the salad.
Oil and vinegar from the vintage Pyrex containers.
Salt & Pepper and mustard served from the Royal Chrome Condiment Set.
The little votives are in vintage glasses that match the glasses
used in the vintage Fiesta Ensemble sets.
Glassware from Home Goods, napkins from Bed Bath Beyond and
the cute napkin rings came from eBay.

The little Made in Japan wall pocket holds Lantana, Salvia,
Verbena, and Geraniums from my garden.
