Spinach, Mushroom, and Red-Onion Salad

Making your own croutons is economical and easy. Toss cubed bread with a little olive oil, season, and bake until toasted.

  • prep: 10 mins
    total time: 25 mins
  • servings: 8




  • 1 baguette (8 ounces), cubed
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 10 ounces white mushrooms, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 10 ounces baby spinach
  • 1 medium red onion, halved and thinly sliced


  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss bread with 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Bake, tossing occasionally, until toasted, 4 to 6 minutes. (To store, keep croutons in a resealable bag, up to 1 week.)

  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, whisk together remaining oil, vinegar, and Dijon; season with salt and pepper. (To store, refrigerate dressing, up to 1 week.)

  3. Step 3

    Toss mushrooms with dressing; let stand 5 minutes. Add spinach, onion, and croutons to bowl; toss, and serve immediately.

    I would recommend doubling the dressing recipe if making the recipe for 8.
