Something Special Salad

"This is a good choice when a run-of-the-mill salad isn't special enough," writes Linda Wright of Okemos, Michigan. "I can a pound of bacon at a time and keep it in the freezer. With the added convenience of shredded cheese and packaged salad greens, there isn't much preparation time required.

    This is a great salad. I made the salad for a Christmas party, and added a little more cheese, and refrigerated the salad dressing ahead of time. My guest really enjoyed the dish, and served with french bread, this salad is delicious. Yumm
