Salad is best day 1 or 2. If making ahead of time only add a little bit of the dressing. Reserve the remaining dressing to toss right before serving.
Cooking bacon – I love to bake bacon. It’s super easy and little clean up and you get the best crispy bacon. Just preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Add strips of bacon and bake for 20-23 minutes until nice and crispy. Transfer bacon to a plate lined with a paper towel to cool. Once cooled, crumble bacon.
