Actually, this should really be called - the salad dressing.  But because I used it with spinach, I've called this the spinach salad recipe.

Since the avocado is healthy for you, I've decided to make this spinach salad with avocado.  It's easy and you can make it your main lunch.  This serves 2 side dish salads or 1 main course salad.

3 cups baby spinach cleaned
1 Avocado
1/4 c blue cheese or creamy ranch dressing
2 TB crumbled feta cheese
1 clove garlic
2 TB mayonnaise
2 TB buttermilk
1-2 slices of cooked bacon chopped (preferrably sodium nitrate free)

Combine the dressing, garlic, mayonnaise and buttermilk with the garlic pressed over the mixture in a small bowl or large cup.  Set aside until ready to use.

When ready, place the spinach on a serving bowl (individual), top with slices of avocado and feta cheese.  Sprinkle the bacon on top.  Spoon the dressing over and serve.

Easy for lunch, or dinner.  You can use the dressing for a cob salad.  Simply add some hard boiled egg slices, chopped lettuce, some defrosted corn kernels if you don't have a fresh one.  For a main meal, you can add cooked shrimp or pieces of left over roast or boiled chicken.
