This is absolutely delicious! It was my first try at making a home-made salad dressing (besides potato/slaw types). My favorite dressings have always been Creamy Cucumber Ranch and Western! I do believe you've converted me and now I will have to try making other varieties (in addition to this one of course). This is a keeper!! It was easy to make and even tasted great on plain old iceberg lettuce too! Thank you for sharing your recipe Merlot!

This salad is a KEEPER!!!It is fantastic!Very simple to make and soooo gooood.Thank you for this recipe.The dressing has a nice sweet/sour taste and the bacon and cheese in the salad was really great.I also added 1 clove of minced garlic to the dressing.I think it helped to round out the flavor.I also added some diced red onion and some garlic croutons to the lettuce,bacon and cheese salad.Very Good!!!

This is a great, simple salad. The dressing makes a very large amount, about 5-6 servings for me, and I like a lot of dressing on my salad. If you like your dressing more tangy than sweet, I would suggest adding a lot less sugar than the recipe recommends. I only added 1/3 cup of sugar, and it was still very sweet. Next time I think I will start with 2 tablespoons and work my way up. Other than that, the dressing had a great flavor. Thanks for the great recipe.

We enjoyed every single bite of this. The dressing was so good. I made it early in the morning and just let it sit out until dinner tonight. It makes a lot of dressing, but I'll be using it for other salads. Thanks Merlot for a keeper.

We enjoyed this so much! I use a white sharp cheddar and real bacon which added so much to this salad! I know I will be making this again, Merlot! Thanks so much for sharing!

Wow, this salad is delish. I used turkey bacon so I could use a ton of it without guilt. I didn't have time to make the dressing ahead and it was still fabulous. Thanks for sharing this, Merlot.
