The salad itself was good - had some nice earthy undertones from the radish and mushrooms, which I liked, and think gave it some uniqueness. I didn't add bacon because I'm a vegetarian, but my husband and daughter added some strips of grilled chicken breast, and loved it like that. Also, the salad mix I used had some julienne carrots, which I think added to it too. As for the dressing....I personally thought it was way too sweet and had no flavor aside from being too sweet. I "doctored" it quite a bit to compensate; I added pepper, parsley flakes, dried oregano, garlic salt, about a Tbs of olive oil, about a Tbs of balsamic vinegar, and about twice the worchestershire. That gave it some oomph, and it did taste a little less sweet once it was on the salad, but I still found it too sweet. My husband and daughters, however, thought it was great, and have asked me to make this again. (Which is a big compliment!) I most definitely will - its a good salad - but I am toning down the sugar in the dressing next time, for sure.
