What's not to love about Bacon, Cheese and surimi. I had all in the fridge today and threw this salad together for lunch. MmmMmm good.

This is one of those recipes that you keep thinking about after you eat it. I love surimi so that was hit #1. Then you add bacon and cheese? 

You could lighten this recipe, if you replace the mayo with Greek yogurt. YUMMMM!  The Test Kitchen
