This is a recipe shared on another recipe program I have, and it was so wonderful! I made it my own...a little alterations to your personal taste won't hurt! I like crunchy toppings, and the salad cold.

In glass measuring cup, combine Vinegar, Sugar and Oil; microwave, on High, 2 minutes. Pour over vegetable mixture; mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm or chilled, with crumbled bacon on top.
