BACON & BLEU COMBO SALAD

This is my "make a meal of it" salad that delights the taste buds with a variety of complementary flavors and textures. If you aren't a bleu cheese fan, use your own favorite cheese as a substitute. My husband prefers cheddar, but mozzarella, colby etcetera, would be great too.
