My Most Requested Summer Salad Recipe (with Bacon!)

Picnics, patio dinners and warm weather dining just taste better with summer salads. Salads with bacon are even better!

“Can I bring something?”

“Don’t you have a really great broccoli salad? You know, the one you brought last year that has bacon in it.”

“You mean the one with bacon, broccoli, and grapes? The one that feeds a LOT of people?”

“That’s the one! Could you bring that? Everyone loves it!”

“OF COURSE! It’s my favorite summer salad!”

I’m not really sure where I got this recipe. It lives on a faded recipe card that is smattered with water spots and dressing stains.

Look even closer and you will see that there are lots of spots where I have to decipher my own hand writing. However, I’ve made this so many times that I can read through all those spots. I almost have it memorized.

You might have a similar version of this summer salad?

But, Bacon and Grapes Together!

In this summer salad recipe, it is the combination of grapes and bacon that grabs my attention. The dressing seals the deal.

It easily feeds 10 people and is great for doubling if you have larger gatherings.

Nothing fancy about the ingredients…I picked up almost everything at Aldi!
