Here's a colorful salad with a wide range of tastes and textures that go together so well. There are sweet peaches, tart lemon, tangy vinegars and all kinds of crunch from greens, bacon and nuts. —Denise Elder, Hanover, Ontario

"This was delish. I loved the bacon in it. I added candied pecans and a bit or Gorgonzola it went perfect with grilled pork chops."
