    From Canadian Living magazine. All the flavours of a favourite sandwich tossed together on a plate makes this just as popular when it's a salad.

      This is very good. I used more romaine than the recipe called for as I like lots of lettuce. I used less tomatoes as i inadvertently ate most of my tomatoes. I mixed up dressing and served a drizzle over each serving when needed.

      Awesome! The salad combination itself is terrific, but it's the basil dressing that makes it really terrific! The sweet basil flavor is perfect against the salty bacon and the fresh tomatoes.... and everything else. I made the dressing hours ahead of time to allow the flavors to develop and I'm hooked on the dressing alone. I'm going to use this simple dressing recipe on many other salads. Thanx for posting!

      This was a truly delicious salad that is very filling and could be your main meal! I made this exactly as posted and loved it. The yogurt in the dressing gave it a nice tang and the basil was a unique twist. This stretches a lot if it's served as a first course because it is so hearty. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to impress guests, as well. Thanks for sharing this keeper! Made for PRMR Tag Game.
