As its name implies, the Texas spinach salad begins with fresh spinach, and adds hard boiled eggs, fresh mushrooms, bacon and pecans, as well as jack and cheddar cheese, croutons and a few fried jalapenos. The jalapenos add more bite than you might expect, so make sure to have a cold drink on hand for your first bite. Honey mustard dressing comes on the side, so you can pour as much as you like over the bowl.
