Loved this salad! Would be great to take to a picnic or party as it makes quite a bit.

Far better than a BLT sandwich! To lower the fat, I used turkey bacon, lower mayo/vinegar ratio (light olive oil mayo) and less dressing overall. It was AMAZING, so I can only imagine how good the regular version must be -- will definitely make this again!
