This can also be used for any type of salad greens. For some reason the onion, blue cheese, bacon and dressing just goes together just right. It is a favorite from my kitchen.

I just made a huge bowl of this for dinner and served it with crusty baguettes. My kids ate plate after plate of this stuff, it was so good! Only change I made was to use a purple onion instead of vidalia because I had one in the fridge. Super quick, easy, cheap delicious summertime meal. Thanks, Babz! :)

This sounds like a perfect hot summer day salad. I make a similar one that includes black olive & feta instead of blue cheese. A Mediterranean twist.
