Bacon & Swiss Salad

I mentioned on 4 little Ferguson’s facebook page, that I had 30 cups of lettuce ready, because I was making THE Salad.  As in the only one I ever take to Holiday functions or Dale’s family would eat me alive.

For real.

It’s that good, and a nice change from your typical dinner salad.

Bacon and Swiss Salad


  • 10 cups Mixed Greens, We Prefer Spring Greens And Spinach Leaves
  • ½ whole Red Onion, Thinly Sliced
  • 2 packages ( 3 Oz Each) Real Bacon Bits
  • ¾ cups Miracle Whip {or mayo, but miracle whip adds a nice zip}
  • 2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
  • 4 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 cup Shredded Swiss Cheese

Clean lettuce and pinch into bite sized pieces. Slice red onion very thin. Combine lettuce, onion, and bacon in a large fix ‘n mix bowl. Toss well.

Make dressing (can be made ahead) using miracle whip/mayo, vinegar and sugar, mixing ingredients well.

Just before serving toss dressing and shredded Swiss with salad.
