Very good salad if you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary. I like a salad with a lot of veggies. I just didn't really care for the maple syrup flavor, maybe next time I'll try something else. But wilted salads are sexy. Thanks for posting.

Made for Gimme 5. Oh Lainey...this is delicious! *happy sigh* I adore balsamic vinegar and honestly...anything with bacon HAS to be yummy! A wonderful flavourful salad that is made simple and quick by using a store-bought rotisserie chicken!

Delicious! I used pasta instead of lettuce (since it had spoiled, and I was looking forward to the salad.) ZWT4 Flying Duchess'
