Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. When cool, crumble the bacon into a large salad bowl. Reserve 1 tablespoon of bacon drippings, and let cool.
  2. Mix the bacon drippings and mayonnaise into the crumbled bacon until thoroughly combined; stir in tomatoes and cucumbers. Season to taste with kosher salt, five-peppercorn blend, and cumin. Allow to chill for at least 1 hour before serving (overnight is better).

I used reduced fat mayonnaise and I added it 1/4 cup at a time until it was as creamy as I wanted. The cumin was optional, I opted out. The bacon drippings were a stroke of genius. This salad is IN-sane. CRAZY GOOD.

Deliciously different tomato and cucumber salad! To simplify it, I used a 4.3 oz. bag of real bacon bits instead of cooking bacon and crumbling it. Of course, I didn't have the 1 T. of bacon drippings to add but that just made the dish healthier. Omitted the cumin. Reminded me of a BLT with the mayo, tomato, and bacon flavors. Just be sure to de-seed the tomatoes and drain off as much liquid as possible before adding to the salad to minimize the wateriness of the dressing.

This is EXCELLENT! Even the pickiest eaters will love this, as well as those who can take or leave cucumbers. It's going to be a summer staple and see many pot lucks.
