      Weirdly enough, we all liked this. We just kept eating serving after serving, finally deciding that it was the many facets of flavor that drew us to it... Salty, tangy, bacon-y.... Anyway, it was good, and definitely helped to deplete the surplus of lettuce in our fridge. I think I may have to get my cholesterol checked out now though :)

      I grew up on this. My mom always loved to make this and still does. Now I make it. The only difference is we use only green onions chopped, and we do use white vinegar. It is sooo good, I always eat wayyyyy to much.
