I found this dressing recipe in a junior league cookbook and adjusted it to fit our low carb diet. I always make this for special meals like Easter or Christmas.

  2. Process until blended.
  3. Combine greens, bacon, cheese and almonds.

I made the dressing and just put on greens. I did cut the Splenda down to 1/2 cup but next time I would cut it down even more as it was still a bit sweet for me. I used canola oil and red wine vinegar. I enjoyed this but also just made the dressing on the side. Will make this again.

Very good salad! I followed the other reviewers' advice and cut down on the splenda - I only used about 1-2 packets. I'm not a swiss cheese fan so I didn't use the full 4 oz. I also left out the almonds, only because I didn't have any on hand. I've made this several times, regardless if I'm following a low carb diet or not. My friends loved it as well!

Oh my this had way too much splenda in it and so, so sweet. I made the recipe for the dressing and served it over spinach, tomatoes, zucchina, bacon and red onion salad. Wish I would have read the other reviews and cut back on the splenda. Thanks for sharing. Made for "The Love Train" event.
