I don't understand how you can put "all of yolks" in a separate bowl, mash them, and add other ingredients then "chop egg yolks" and sprinkle over spinach. Could the 2nd egg yolk step be a slip that really means egg whites? - 12/26/10

No, because the egg yolk is part of the "dressing" when combined with only the mustard, vinegar, and sugar. Then, set that aside while you prepare the salad. Does that help?
I replaced 1T of the apple cider vinegar with red wine vinegar and just a shake of stevia. Also replaced 1T of mustard with whole grain dijon. Added sliced red onion, grape tomatoes (halved), greek olives and freshly grated black pepper. Slivered almonds and freshly grated parmesan to top at end. - 4/21/13
This was a good salad! The dressing was too sweet & thick for my liking. Next time I will decrease the Splenda & increase the Apple Cider. I added cherry tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, toasted almond slivers, avocado & shredded parmesian cheese. Thanks for sharing, will make again! - 5/16/12
The quantity of dressing was just enough to give all the ingredients a light covering, while still allowing the natural flavor of all the fresh vegetables to come through. I added broccoli, red and green onion, carrot, and celery to the mix. Also, for the dressing I used stevia for a sweetner. - 12/8/10

Great additions! I'll try Stevia next time too! I always add sliced mushrooms, and sometimes top with some fresh, sliced strawberries!
My husband and I enjoyed this for lunch. This is something I will make again. - 12/7/09
