This salad was delicious! Guests raved over it and I don't even really like salad but could eat this for a while meal I think. Dressing really has a light sweet tangy flavor with the dijon and the maple.

- 4 button mushrooms, sliced
- 1⁄4-1⁄3 cup pine nuts, toasted
- 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
