All American Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Salad

Want that bacon-lettuce tomato flavor without the calories of bread?  This simple, delicious recipe from “Land O Lakes Taste of Summer" is just right for those first, mouth-watering, vine-ripened tomatoes from your garden.   Grill anything to go with it…iced tea and cookies for dessert – the best of summer.
I purchased the rather expensive famous bottled ranch dressing; my husband’s only comment was “This is OK, but any of your homemade dressings would be better tasting.”  I had to agree.
