This Cobb Salad with Bacon is a fantastically delicious recipe for those hot no-cook summer days, or as a healthy side dish at any time during the year. A simple stroll through our homestead’s garden offers up everything we need for a delicious salad… But the real star here is our treasured dry salt cured bacon. Here’s our recipe for homemade bacon.
