"LOVE this recipe! It has quickly become a family favorite. I toast my almonds to bring out the flavor before adding them to the salad. YUMMY!"

"I don't even like bacon, and I enjoyed this salad. I did add some fresh lemon to the dressing, and I didn't have celery salt so I used celery seed instead. It turned out great, and my guests enjoyed it too!"

"This was a very good salad, a little sweet. Loved the bacon. Like another reviewer wrote, don't toss too early."

"Even my no-greens eater made an exception for this since there was bacon in it. This was very good. Just be sure to wait until dinner is ready to toss with oranges and bacon or it will get soggy."
