The flavors in this salad are 10-star. A little heavy on the dressing and blue cheese - I used a lighter hand. Also used walnuts because I didn't have pecans. Excellent salad - my guys all raved. Thanks!

Simple to make. Used real bacon bits instead of frying the bacon. Toast the pecans for added flavor. Used Trader Joe's balsamic vinegarette. Will make this for company again in a few days.
