California Coleslaw
I used a 16 oz. package of shredded cabbage with carrots and red cabbage and then followed the recipe for the dressing. The slaw was refrigerated for about an hour and we had it for dinner. It was delicious and as stated by others it was even better a day or two later. Thanks, this is a great change from a creamy dressing.

Grilled Romaine Salad
The dressing was a bit too sweet for my taste, I prefer oil & vinegar with blue cheese crumbles. I also do not turn the romaine, just lay the cut side down and leave a very short time until it has grill marks. Turning or leaving it too long seems to take the crunch out of it.

Peppered Bacon and Tomato Linguine
This was very good and different. I too could not find peppered bacon, so I bought thick sliced bacon then rubbed it with cracked pepper. Worked fine. I also used two cans of tomatoes to make more sauce and we like a little sugar to take away the acidity...so I added 1Tbsp. sugar. I might have been missing something, but I don't believe the original recipe indicated when to put the bacon in, it just said "drain, reserving drippings and set aside", but as indicated by others, I added the bacon just before serving. I definately would make this again.
