    On large serving platter or in 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish, arrange salad ingredients in rows or if desired, arrange individual salads on lettuce-lined plates.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix dressing ingredients. Serve dressing with salad or spoon dressing over individual salads.

  • Look for the cooked bacon near the luncheon meat at the supermarket. Also, hard-cooked eggs are often available in the deli or dairy department.
  • A 5 to 7 ounce bag of mixed salad greens will equal about 5 cups.
