"I made this salad for my family over Thanksgiving and it was a big hit! The dressing is simple yet has a lot of flavor and does not overpower the salad."

"I started making all my own dressings years ago so I am always on the lookout for new recipes. Nothing beats homemade dressing. This is delicious .. and looks so pretty in a salad dressing bottle. Loved the salad too but I forgot the bacon. Oops ... next time. Yum! It was quick and easy."

"Made this for lunch with company. Excellent! I used microwave bacon...easy. I substituted romaine for the iceberg. I would make this again. I would also use the dressing on Cole slaw."
