Delicious salad. I omitted the corn. I also chose to grate the carrot and used extra old cheddar.

I love recipes with the flexibility of ingredients for (1) personal preference (2) that most people have on hand and (3) allow for easy substitution. Since it was difficult to layer everything in my shallow Margarita glasses, I combined all the veggies into a single layer except for the halved grape tomatoes that I added. I omitted the cucumber & iceberg lettuce as I didn't have any & I substitutued baked tortilla strips for the bacon. I made no changes to the dressing which was very tasty!
This would be perfect dish for a pot luck ........... just reserve the dressing until serving time!

Loved the presentation of serving in margarita glasses! They made a nice addition to a Valentine Dinner for two. I made a full batch of the dressing and used it on other salads.

Wonderful, fresh, and boasting with tons of flavor. I used this for a Fox-hunting tea, and it was gobbled up so fast, I wish I had made more. The only change was using chickepeas instead of corn, otherwise stayed true to the recipe. The dressing is the bomb! Perfect in everyway. Thanks, Rita!

I've always loved this salad, and was thankful for the reminder because I haven't made it in a long time! I liked it even better with Ranch! Now I have an even better excuse to make it moe often! Nice job, Rita!

You SCORED big time at the neighborhood "Stupid Bowl" party on Sunday night!!! I have to admit, I left out the celery (because I just don't like it). I shredded the carrot on my cheese grater (which I used a "medium cheddar cheese" by the way) just for the fact I cannot eat anything to hard. It turned out wonderful! It was so pretty. (I used 2 - 9x9 clear Pyrex dishes for assembly). I wish I would've taken a photo. (Next time I will). Thanks for a delicious salad that I got to share with my friends. Everyone loved it!
