Ilove this recipe. I have been eating it since I cannot remember. I love cider vinegar and maple bacon. I made this salad to use the things I love. Must be the German in me.

Oh, the memories of my childhood! Summer would not be the same without this fantastic dish! We made it without the hard boiled eggs and Grandma used green onion instead of a small onion and mixed it with the lettuce instead of 'cooking' it with the dressing. THE BEST!
