My husband loved this salad, the only thing I recommend is to make sure you pour the dressing on the lettuce right before you serve it or the lettuce will become too soggy. I think next time I ...

Very good hot bacon dressing. I used on top of baby spinach. I also halved the recipe for three people. It turned out perfect.

The dressing is PERFECT -- just the right touch of sweetness, not too vinegary. I'll definitely be making this again soon. Thanks very much.

I used the dressing for a spinach salad instead. I used turkey bacon to make it a little lighter. It was very good!

Left out the egg. I always serve this with the lettuce cut in wedges instead of pieces. Also, try it with fresh spinach and strawberries (leaving out the radishes).

Outstanding! Used 1 recipe dressing to 1 1/2 recipes of lettuce. Left out the radishes.

This is just like my Mom's - so kid friendly with the bacon that they'll even eat spinach! Actually, I prefer to make the dressing and serve it with Spinach (like a wilted Spinach Salad!).

use endive instead of lettuce. Yummy
