...that everything's better with bacon.
I make this salad when I want a light dinner that’s still filling and satisfying. This salad is kind of deceptive because despite the good nutritional value of the raw vegetables, the egg, bacon and sour cream are packed with calories. Oh well. It’s delicious anyway. It’s not traditional for salads to be dressed with sour cream in America but it is quite common in Russian and Ukrainian salads.
