Expert Tips

Stir the salad just before serving to redistribute all the ingredients. If the dressing is too thick, thin it with a little milk.

For 8 grams of fat and 140 calories per serving, use reduced-fat mayonnaise and cheese. Decrease bacon to 2 slices.

To make spears, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch stalks. For pieces, cut the 1/2-inch stalks crosswise into 1-inch pieces (or size desired).
