    This looks delicious! We’re on a mission to eat a big salad every day for lunch in our house, and I’ going to add this one to the list to try next week.

    Just wondering why you choose turkey bacon over regular bacon? Although it’s a rare treat in our house, we buy naturally smoked bacon from our local sustainable organic butcher. The bacon is salted and then smoked in a smoke house, and that’s it. Although it’s higher in fat content (and saturated fats), real bacon also doesn’t have any artificial flavors or other chemicals added to simulate flavor and texture. And, depending on the brand of turkey bacon, it can have as many calories and nearly as much fat as the regular stuff.

    So, those are my reasonings for choosing real bacon. I am curious to learn what your reasonings are for choosing the turkey variety? Thanks!

      Rachel, I just happened to use Applegate Organic Turkey Bacon in this recipe. I do choose good quality regular/pork bacon in other recipes. Either choice would be great thank you for pointing it out as I am sure others would wonder the same. You bring up a great point. Just because it is Turkey does not mean it is healthier than regular bacon. It is most important for the bacon either turkey or pork to be from a sustainable source (as in your case). We also do not eat bacon often but it adds great flavor to this salad. I love your mission to eat a big salad every day. What a great way to get your fiber, enzymes and mirconutrients in!
