Boy this is a great salad! Easy to make, loved the dressing, and tastes just like my favorite BLT! I left out the onion and used a regular tomato instead of cherry tomatoes as I had one on hand. Served this with steak but could easily eat it as a meal on its own - thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for My 3 Chefs, November 2009
