This salad is so fast and simple. It's perfect for a hot summer day. You can cook the bacon in the microwave and not even have to heat up the house. I use turkey bacon to make it lighter.

  • 34 cup ranch dressing

This was so very good. I used grape tomatoes and cut them in half. The bacon is what really gives it the flavor and we couldn't stop eating it. Main course took a back seat to this. Thanks for a great recipe. Will make often.

So easy to do and unbelievable how good it is. I'll do it very often I think :P I cooked my bacon in the microwave. I used Renee's ranch dressing with sour cream. Thanks :)
