When a friend shared this recipe, it had a fancy French name. Our children can never remember it, so they say, "Mom, please make 'that good salad'. Now our friends and neighbors request it for potluck dinners. —Betty Lamb, Orem, Utah

My family's go-to recipe for DECADES. When serving to vegetarians, I omit the bacon and double the cheese and it's just as good. Well, as good as can be without bacon! :)
