“This a hearty meat and vegetable salad: two pounds of maple flavored bacon make it very filling. It's a meal in itself!”

This was delicious when fresh. Very flavorful. Good as leftovers the second day, however bacon tends to get a little soggy. Second time I made used roasted pine nuts, and sprinkled the bacon and nuts on each serving so bacon was not soggy as a leftover. The pine nuts were an excellent substitute for the almonds.

I used 4 tablespoons of Bac-o s instead of the actual bacon because I am a vegetarian, but it's also healthier and makes the prep time shorter. But if going to use baco s instead of real bacon, only add it right before serving because otherwise they get mushy, and don't taste good. I also used light mayonnaise and added some raisins. It came out great.

This recipe was recommended to me by a co-worker who makes it every year for Christmas. I also made it for Christmas dinner. Wow! It is awesome. I got many compliments. I do agree with others who state that it is time consuming but it is well worth it. I used 2 1/2 heads of broccoli and doubled everything but the sugar, bacon and nuts to lower the calories. There is no need to use so much sugar as the grapes give the salad the sweetness needed. This recipe will definitely join my favourites.
