    From my brother's fiancee--she loves this as a light lunch or dinner. I think she said she got this from her mother's copy of The Joy of Cooking.

      The sugar and pecan coated bacon elevate this salad to a 4-star rating. I used Garlic Croutons - Garlic Croutons by Derf. I used a Catalina dressing but I'm wondering if a creamy garlic would have been even better.
