I needed a few bites to get used to the beer-dressing, but after that it was quite nice. I had this salad for lunch and two people wanted to try a little bit and said it was nice. I find the bacon crucial in this recipe - I guess I would have rated it lower without it. The bacon goes well with the beer. I would add more onion another time, although I don't think I will make it again. This salad would make a nice side dish to a strong sausage. I made this salad for the Zaar World Tour 2 and I found it fun experimenting with a beer dressing.
