Assembling the Salad

  • This salad can be prepped ahead of time. Make the dressing and refrigerate up to 5 days. Cooked bacon can keep in the fridge in a sealed container (reheat before adding to the salad). Croutons will keep in a sealed container on the counter up to 2 days.
  • To assemble, add the lettuce to a large bowl or platter then top with the remaining ingredients. Drizzle with dressing just before eating.
