    I really liked the simplicity of this salad. I actually used a shop bought French dressing, which went perfectly.  -  03 Oct 2008

    This really is a simple and delicious salad. There are a lot of variations possible. I substituted turkey bacon for the real bacon and added some shredded cheese. I doubleed the recipe to make a large dinner salad and served it with a loaf od french bread. My family scarfed it down. Definately a "make-again".  -  23 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
