Introduction

This is a delightful, sweet salad containing vegetables, dried fruits, and nuts. You can definitely shave off some calories and fat by using a leaner bacon (or less of it), and using light mayo. I don't recommend using LESS dressing, though -- it really makes the salad! This is a delightful, sweet salad containing vegetables, dried fruits, and nuts.
