Easy to make ahead, especially for guests who always love this salad. Granny Smith apple marinated in balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing, bleu cheese, pecans, and bacon all tossed over romaine.

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.
