Bacon makes everything better — especially salads!

The key to an out of this world salad is pairing a splash of sweet with a dash of salty.

Of course, we want this salad to be a complete meal, packed with healthy fats, vitamins and nutrients. So our Sweet and Savory Salad also features avocado, chicken and pumpkin seeds on a bed of baby kale leaves. And to dress our salad as beautifully as it is crafted, we whipped up a quick Red Wine Vinegar and Olive Oil with fresh basil dressing.

Yes, this salad will satisfy your appetite while indulging every one of your taste buds. Enjoy!
