"I really liked this salad. I used purple onions and no mint(didnt have any). I added real bacon bits. It was fabulous. I will make it again."

"This salad is amazing! I didn't have any mint so that was the only thing I left out. Served it with Bacon Squash Saute found on this site. A WONDERFUL meal!!!"
