Reviews forHot Bacon Asparagus Salad
"This is a great recipe we really enjoyed with the addition of sliced Cremini mushrooms to the mix, on a bed of baby spinach."
"Taste is exceptional - everyone that tries it loves it! I make it a bit healthier by substituting extra virgin olive oil for the bacon grease, substituted brown sugar for the white to intensify the sweet, and used baby spinach for the salad greens."
