"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

2 lb. spinach
12 mushrooms
2 ripe avocados
1/2 lb. crisp bacon
1/2 cup large curd cottage cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 T. onion flakes
1/3 cup cider vinegar
3/4 cup salad oil
1 T. poppy seeds

Mix dressing ingredients together ahead of time. I think one half of this amount is all the dressing you need.
Divide dressing in half and mix with cottage cheese. Pour other half over spinach, mushrooms, avocados and bacon. Toss. Add cottage cheese and serve immediately.
