Tips and variations

  • This salad tastes fine without the bacon and nuts, if you need to remove either of them due to dietary needs or allergies. Removing them would also lower the overall fat and sodium for this recipe.
  • This salad will make a welcomed lunch to pack in your children’s or your lunch box. Keep the bacon and almonds packed in a separate container or small bag, to be added to the salad before eating.
