This recipe is based on Cyclone Momma's recipe, but I always substitute anchovy paste for the whole ones. Posting it so I don't have to remember how much paste is equal to whole anchovies! I also use Splenda most of the time, but you can use real sugar! This comes from my neighbor's favorite restaurant while she lived in Indiana...and our favorite family salad now!

Awesome salad!!! I made this as directed with a couple of veggie changes, I only used red bell pepper and then added celery, carrots and green onion, but otherwise made as directed. To me, the dressing really makes the salad and then the bacon flavor adds another dimension!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Photo Tag Game.
