How to Prep Ahead of Time!

You can prep some of this salad ahead by toasting almonds and baking bacon in the oven together. Click here for instructions on How to Cook Bacon in the Oven . Next, just bag and freeze. They’ll stay fresh for at least three months. Then, when temperatures are hot, just pull out your bacon and almonds and prep the rest without heating up the kitchen. This salad is a favorite of ours. We hope you’ll love it too!

Enjoy!
