Recipe by Jen Andrews

When I was growing up this was my grandfathers favorite salad, and would have my mother bring it to every get together. It's been a family favorite ever since.

This is so good!!!I do use sweet WallaWalla onions or Vadilia onions.This is also delicious with red leaf,Romaine and radiccio lettuce! This is also a wonderful dietary cleansing food. The vinegar offsets the bacon and grease and you can use Splenda if you wish. Thanks for posting!
