Sweet 'n Sour Salad

This simple salad enjoys the addition of a zesty dressing that takes its cue from the orient. It's just one of the many salads that can benefit from the addition of crumbled hard-boiled eggs.
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/3 c. orange juice
  • 1/3 c. red wine vinegar
  • 1 T. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. grated ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 8 c. baby spinach leaves
  • 1 c. thinly bias-sliced carrots
  • 1 c. coarsely chopped red bell pepper
  • 4 green onions, bias-sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 can baby corn, drained and halved
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs, crumbled

In a screw-top jar, combine the brown sugar, orange juice, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger and garlic. Screw the lid onto the jar and shake vigorously to blend. Set aside.

Arrange the spinach, carrots, pepper, onion, corn and eggs on 4 salad plates. Drizzle the dressing over the salads and serve immediately.
