Garden Fresh Salad Recipe

Frugal farm women like myself enjoy fixing meals from their own gardens. This is one of the best salads I've ever tried. It tastes like a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich (without the bread)! My whole family loves it.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 bunch leaf lettuce, torn
  • 2 cups packed torn spinach
  • 1 cup cubed part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery
  • 6 medium fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
