    Geema's Note:

    Crisp bacon makes this salad a real winner. I use turkey bacon with good success. Please don't try to substitute those artificial bacon bits in this recipe, it just won't work.

      Took this salad to a family gathering today. Brought home an empty dish. Everyone really liked it and said it tasted just like a BLT sandwich. The one change I made was to add a little Splenda to the dressing because I was afraid it was a little too tart. Definitely a keeper. Thanks, Geema!

      This is much like Caesar Salad with a more vinegar like dressing & the addition of tomatoes. I used REAL bacon bits but "store bought" croutons since I was pressed for time. Thanx Geema!
