We looooove this salad; I often get recipe requests. I appreciate the advice from the reviewer who said she doubles the cheese when she has to omit the bacon for vegetarians... I tried tonight with friends who don't eat pork, and was happy to see them go for seconds. You just can't go wrong with this salad.
Out of everything that I make this is my mothers FAVORITE. It does make a lot so use a big salad bowl ya"ll!
One of my go-to recipes whenever I'm entertaining a crowd - very good recipe!
So good my kids love it so much I make it twice a week
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! :)
