Sweet-Sour Lettuce Salad

This super-quick salad dressing is a breeze to shake up when you're in a hurry. "It's refreshing, slightly sweet flavor compliments fresh lettuce and crisp bacon bits quite nicely," remarks Lois Fetting of Nelson, Wisconsin.

    I did not care for this at all,. However I did appreciate it as it is no sodium recipe. I am always searching for no or low sodium recipes these day's. I won't be making this one again.

    I was hesitant to try this because it smelled way too "vinegary" for my tastes. However, I went ahead and ate it and it was so good! I didn't add the bacon, but did add cheddar cheese. I will definitely be making this again! So glad I tried it!
