    YUM!!! I made a few adjustments because it just me eating salads in my house! I added a little cheese and brocolli because I needed to use them. I also left out the red onion because I don't like them raw. Thanks so much for a keeper!

    This was great! It is so versatile and much easier than a layered salad. Thanks for posting!

    Super easy and super good..With things usually on hand, I love that. This was so good without the tomaoes that I decided not to add them...maybe next time cause I will be making this again. Thanks gardenz.

    I solved the "tomato problem" by using grape tomatoes instead of larger cut ones. That way, it holds up great. I too was forced to use frozen peas.

    I made this for a church potluck on Sunday. It was great. I used frozen peas and used no bacon. One person left a note for the recipe and my husband didn't know what I had brought and told me it was the best salad on the table. Simple and yummy. I had some left over at home and added some "fake" soy bacon bits. Worked very well!
