  • Comments from the author. I take a 1 pound package of bacon and cut as much of the fat off as possible and end up with 1/2 pound We like Henri's honey mustard dressing because it is fat-free and milder than some of the others. 

Recipe Tips

  • The dressing used is Henri's Honey Mustard Dressing because it is very low in fat and mild for a mustard dressing. It’s perfect if you don’t like a heavy mustard flavor. However, feel free to use your own favorite honey mustard dressing.
  • Take a 1 pound package of bacon and cut as much of the fat off as possible so that you end up with 1/2 pound.
  • Left over fish and shrimp make great additions to this salad
    • My daughter doesn't like a heavy mustard flavor. You could use your own favorite honey mustard dressing. Our daughter had a friend over for dinner last night who has never had this salad. She immediately asked for the recipe so she could give it to her mother. This recipe is a classic from http://www.copykatchat.com. This was originally posted by Prom Mom.
