Simple and tasty salad. I found this in a electric coop magazine. I sometimes cheat and use packaged real bacon bits instead of cooking the bacon myself. You can easily substitute iceberg lettuce for the romaine.

What a fun salad!!! I love BLT's so couldn't wait to try this salad. I read the other 2 reviews and wish I would have cut back on the garlic powder, as one of them had done so, as it over-powered the salad. I would definitely make this again but cutting back on the garlic powder and then feel it would be a 5 star salad for me.

This was a nice salad addition to our menu. I did use fat free mayo. I would reduce the amount of bacon to serve as a side salad next time. Thank you for sharing your recipe! Reviewed for Pick A Chef 2007

Very nice salad! I used sweet grape tomatoes which I sliced in half. I made my own homemade croutons, as I realized while preparing the salad I had none in the house. I decreased the amount of garlic powder in the dressing, as a matter of personal taste. To my taste, the dressing needs no more salt as the bacon supplies all that is needed. Next time I make this salad, I will decrease the amount of bacon to 1/2 pound instead of a full pound. I enjoyed it! Thanks for posting, French Lavender!
