    It's a nice light, summer dinner to take over to someone's house. I substituted slices of turkey instead of croutons and served it with a pasta salad and it was a complete dinner. Everyone loved it. It has a party flair to it.

    So easy. Great with baby spinnach instead of lettuce. I'll use less bacon bits next time (found it too salty) I served the dressing on the side as 1/3C over this is too much for me.
