A nice, simple salad from Elizabeth Powell. It also travels well for picnics in a thermos.

DH loved this salad and before I could say rate 1-5 he said 5! I used real bacon bits and did not top with chives. Not sure why it didnt work to well for me because I enjoy all the ingredients and love bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches. Will be making this again for him soon I think. :) Made and reviewed for lazyme's cookathon.
