With charred bread croutons and fire roasted tomatoes, this was a salad for men and women alike. Heck, the main ingredient is bacon. Who could not love this salad. After making it, I declare that all salads made by me have fire roasted tomatoes on them. It was one of the most delicious salads I have ever eaten.
