  • “Made this for PAC Sprg. 07. Delicious! cut back on the bean sprouts and sugar in the Dressing. The Dressing is a wonderful compliment to the GREENS. Thanks for posting.”

  • “I made this with only Romaine lettuce and it turned out quite nicely.I should have cut back on the bean sprouts though because they overpowered the lettuce.The dressing worked really well with this combination.Next time I’ll use the full amount of bacon because those bites were very yummy!If someone is going to make this recipe as directed, I would suggest doubling the dressing because I don’t think this would be enough for all those greens (unless you like it really light).Thanks for posting this!”
