Summer calls for salad. Any excuse to use up garden-fresh ingredients, really. As soon as a heatwave hits, I'm stocking up on tomatoes, cucumbers, and all that's ripe at the farmers' market. Turn on the stove? No way! I may have changed my mind, though, after looking at the recipe our community dubbed the best across the board. I'm talking over 100 thousand views and 14 thousand saves! It all boils down to four words: Bacon makes it better. That pound of bacon is going to drop a flavor bomb you don't want to miss.
