My family really likes this on hot summer days. We think that the tart, sharp, salty, and sweet flavors teamed with the juicy/crunchy bits of cucumber and apple is amazing. Keep salad chilled until serving. Serve over mixed greens.

This was very nice. I did not have any thawed bacon but had the rest of the ingredients with the exception of Granny Smith apple (I used a Jazz variety). My chicken needed more flavor so salt and pepper were very necessary! Thanks for a quick and easy dinner tonight GRANDMADEB! Read More

This is becoming standard Sunday lunch in addition to our family tuna fish salad. I've made it once without the bacon because I didn't have any on hand and once without bacon and blue cheese substituting goat cheese. The family really enjoys it and I find it a savory alternative to the sweeter chicken and apple/grape salads. Read More

I omitted the blue cheese because I did not have it on hand. I also used a whole apple rather than 1/4 cup. It was a very interesting mix of ingredients. I will definitely make it again. Read More
