I made this salad after seeing it on your show. It is a real good summer salad. I added more mayonnaise and a little sugar to the recipe though. My wife took it to work and they all loved it as well.

This is my husbands favorite! He loved it. I didn't use the sliced bacon I bought the real bacon bits by Hormel. They worked out great and saved time. Thanks Paula another 5 STAR LOVE YA

I give this recipe a 3 star. It was pretty good, but the bacon was a little to crunchy for me in the salad. I will probably not make this again. But, I'm glad I tried it, because it looked so good on the show.
