    I have made this salad before and it's great. The only difference is my recipe called for 1-1/2 cup mayo and 1/2 each for Parmesan cheese and sugar. I too used prepared bacon bacon bits.

    This salad is fantastic! I've made it several times and always get rave reviews and requests for the recipe. So simple and delicious it's unbelievable. To speed up preparation even more, I substituted a packet of prepared bacon bits. Outstanding!
