My husband loved this salad the only thing I recommend is to make sure you pour the dressing on the lettuce right before you serve it or the lettuce will become too soggy. I think next time I might cool the dressing a bit more before tossing it with the lettuce overall an interesting and good tasting salad. Read More

Very good hot bacon dressing. I used on top of baby spinach. I also halved the recipe for three people. It turned out perfect. Read More

The dressing is PERFECT -- just the right touch of sweetness, not too vinegary. I'll definitely be making this again soon. Thanks very much. Read More

I used the dressing for a spinach salad instead. I used turkey bacon to make it a little lighter. It was very good! Read More

Left out the egg. I always serve this with the lettuce cut in wedges instead of pieces. Also try it with fresh spinach and strawberries (leaving out the radishes). Read More

We all loved this over spinach salad but because bacon has enough of it's own sodium I left out the salt entirely. Not something I would make very often but once in a while it's nice to indulge! Delicious and thank you! Read More

This is just like my Mom's - so kid friendly with the bacon that they'll even eat spinach! Actually, I prefer to make the dressing and serve it with Spinach (like a wilted Spinach Salad!). Read More

Awesome salad Vera! We enjoyed it with red leaf lettuce red onion and 2 hardboiled eggs. I left of the radish garnish only because we don't care for the radish flavor. The dressing is to die for. Everyone at my luncheon loved this salad. Many asked for the dressing recipe. Thanks a bunch for sharing. Read More
