  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. When cool, crumble the bacon into a large salad bowl. Reserve 1 tablespoon of bacon drippings, and let cool.
  2. Mix the bacon drippings and mayonnaise into the crumbled bacon until thoroughly combined; stir in tomatoes and cucumbers. Season to taste with kosher salt, five-peppercorn blend, and cumin. Allow to chill for at least 1 hour before serving (overnight is better).

Deliciously different tomato and cucumber salad! To simplify it, I used a 4.3 oz. bag of real bacon bits instead of cooking bacon and crumbling it. Of course, I didn't have the 1 T. of bacon d...

This is EXCELLENT! Even the pickiest eaters will love this, as well as those who can take or leave cucumbers. It's going to be a summer staple and see many pot lucks.

Very nice change from the "regular" tomato-and-cucumber salad. We all loved it. Thanx for the recipe.

This was pretty good but I REALLY didn't care for the cumin, next time I will leave it out.

GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE AND YUMMY!!!! AM-AZ-ING. Refreshing, and yes, reminds me of a salad version of BLTs. Can't taste a strong cucumber or tomato flavor. Just refreshing and satifying ( nice ...

This is more delicious and certainly more unique than most tomato/cucumber salads; thanks. I agree with marleneb- it will see ample potlucks and gatherings!

Used turkey bacon. Didnt have cumin so I used some powdered chipotle pepper (smoked) to kick it up! This was yummy!!!!

I am vegetarian so I substituted Annie's shitake sesame dressing for the bacon/drippings and it was awesome!
