MY REVIEW

"This salad is delicious. I usually reserve it for special occasions, though, because it is a lot of work. The 15 minute prep time is ridiculously optimistic! I suppose it could be accurate if you had already shredded the cabbage; sliced the onions; washed and torn the spinach; cut the tomatoes in half; and cooked and crumbled the bacon. Technically, that is indeed what the ingredient list specifies. However, most people would need to add all of those things into the prep time. :)"
