Spinach is a very healthy vegetable that is used all over the world. It is full of vitamins and iron. Spinach is in season during April in England and this is a good time to eat it, as the young leaves are not so tough as the older leaves. It has an earthy flavour and, in this recipe, it makes for a very tasty salad.

For the salad:

  • 275g (11 oz) of fresh spinach
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs, cooled and shelled
  • 115g (4½oz) cooked mushrooms, cooled
  • 1-2 x 15ml spoon (tablespoon) of cooked bacon (grilled or fryed)

For the honey-mustard dressing:

  • 6 x 15ml spoon (tablespoon) mayonnaise or salad cream
  • 225g (9oz) carton plain yoghurt
  • 3 x 15ml spoon (tablespoon) of Dijon-style mustard
  • 3 x 15ml spoon (tablespoon) of honey, to taste
