IThis salad is certainly not boring. We have had this dish several times since I found it on this website. You don't only have add bacon, anything could be added. e.g. Tuna fish, chicken or any other meat you may have. All I can add to anyone who had not tried this particular dish is ENJOY Margaret

We really enjoyed Laura Terry of Glasgow's mish-mash salad. It was very enjoyable although we did leave out the avocado but this is the sort of dish that you can put anything into.


Sounds good but the avocado would have to go but I would put in a mango instead.
