Tossed Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

"I often take this dressed-up Caesar salad to church functions or family reunions. Its interesting blend of flavors is a hit with everyone, so I always come home with an empty bowl. —Teresa Otto, Hartwell, Georgia

    This is so simple and I can't believe how delicious it was! I used thick cut peppered bacon from the meat department instead of pre packaged stuff and it was amazing. Will make it again very soon.

    I made this for a church supper. I had many requests for the recipe. I did serve the dressing on the side plus had some otheer choices. I'm making a double recipe for our lasagna meal at our next church supper. Yum.
