    Apples and bacon don’t seem a perfect match at the first glance. But this recipe is awesome. I can’t wait to try it.

    I just got a great deal on bacon ends and pieces. I know it’s not turkey bacon but I will try it wit it this time at least. I was looking for a new, and different, salad recipe. This sounds like just the thing. Can’t wait to try it.

    Isn’t Parmesan dairy?

      Yep! I’ve added a Dairy-Free adaptation in the tips. Thanks for catching that!
