"This salad has so many delicious flavors and they all blend together so well. I substituted Morning Star Bacon for the bacon and didn't put in the spinach. Very easy and delicious.

Thank you, Mary Ann for this easy and delicious recipe."

"Made this for Memorial Day weekend family dinner at the lake. Before I turned around it was gone!! Didn't use vinaigrette, just drizzled with EVOO and balsamic vinegar. Absolutely perfect!"
