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 might cool the dressing a bit more before tossing it with the lettuce, overall an interesting and good tasting salad.

Certainly different - an acquired taste I think. Not for us!

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!

We all loved this over spinach salad but because bacon has enough of it's own sodium, I left out the salt entirely. Not something I would make very often, but once in a while, it's nice to indulge! Delicious and thank you!

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.
