This is a wonderful and easy recipe! I've served it a number of time for guests and have received raving reviews and requests for the recipe. I highly recommend trying this out!

This is an easy, flexible salad. I used two small heads of "Artisan" salad (a varied 4-pack) for the lettuce and used turkey bacon (I'm sure the real thing would be even better). For the dress...
