I love this spinach salad.  It’s easy peasy, tasty and fairly healthy…  Reminds me of the Vincent Price Wilted Spinach Salad with Bacon Dressing I have made a few times.   Both lovely, although Vincent’s version includes eggs…

Joan Crawford's Wilted Spinach Salad

My recipe for Joan’s Spinach Salad is from the awesome Joan manifesto “My Way of Life”.  This book is my bible.  I strive to live my life the way Joan did!  For example, I NEVER sit on a bar stool with my back to a room…


Last week, I was really excited to stumble upon a NEW Joan recipe that I don’t already have – for Boiled Beef.   Vogue interviewed Joan in 1965 and she supplied them with four of her favourite recipes – three of which I already had from other sources and are included in the forthcoming Joan Crawford Cookbook, but the beef is new to me.  Not sure if I’ll have time to test it and include it in the book, but I’ll try!  Link to the Vogue article is here… it includes the spinach salad recipe if you can’t wait for the book!

The Joan Crawford Cookbook will be published on Saturday 8th November (see here for a sneaky peek).  I will be hosting a virtual reality cookalong, sending out recipes from the book to friends and fans of Joan all around the world.  If you’d like to participate please get in touch via the Contact Page or leave a comment below.  Absolutely everyone is invited!

Everyone who cooks a dish will be entered into a free draw to win a copy of the book and will be a Silver Screen Suppers friend for life!
