Ingredients You’ll Need

I used about two cups of a spring mix.

Bacon:

You’ll need 3 to 4 slices of bacon. You can use any kind you’d like. You’re just going to chop it up to go on the salad.

Cherry Tomatoes:

I used about a handful of cherry tomatoes. I halved some of them.

Frozen Corn and Lima Beans:

You’ll need about a quarter cup each. I used the frozen that come in the bag.

Pimentos:

You’ll need about a tablespoon of pimentos. These will be by the pickles in a small jar.

Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese:

I really thought about what cheese to go on this salad and honestly, parmesan worked the best in my opinion.

Sweet Onion Dressing:

For the sweet onion dressing, you need olive oil, apple cider vinegar, onion powder, and black pepper.
