      I really enjoyed the flavor the balsamic vinegar added to this dish. It was very easy to assemble. I am looking forward to taking the leftovers to work with me. I for sure will be making this again. Thanks for posting it.

      A salad with lots of potential but for me it needed a little tweaking. I needed about half as much vinegar again because so much evaporated in the first few seconds (so about 1/2 cup total) and I also thought it needed some sugar to balance the tartness of the vinegar. I probably added about 2 tablespoons of sugar and still found it a little tart. Depending on your preferences, you might add up to 1/4 cup sugar. Love the bacon in here. I had a little bit warm but it is good cold as well.
