I made this salad for an end of school year pot luck. The following year I was asked if I would bring it again. People remember this salad from year to year. It can be made the day before and chilled - which is very helpful. It uses a full pound of bacon. The cook time is actually "chill time" in the refrigerator.
- Combine all the salad ingredients, tossing well to mix.
- Mix the dressing ingredients together then toss with the salad mix.
- Let stand at least 1 hour in the refrigerator (can be made the day before).
