Perfect for these hot summer nights! Goes together quickly and not too heavy! Serving it tonight along side some grilled BBQ pork chops.

Fresh and satisfying, creamy and crunchy! We love the bacon flavor (of course) and are thinking about adding grilled chicken the next time we make it! Yum. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
