Fabulous Food: The best salad

So, I was trying to think of some clever names for this salad, but I really couldn't think of anything other than... heaven.  I first made this salad on Valentine's Day...and since then, I have not been able to get it out of my head.  I crave it all of the time.  It's that good.

Start out with some mixed baby greens...

...add some sliced strawberries...

 ...some red onion...

 ...a few lightly candied pecans...

 ...and a few pieces of Applewood smoked bacon.

 Now for the crowning touch- Champagne Pear Vinaigrette with gorgonzola from Trader Joe's.

 I can tell you the combination of the salty bacon, sweet strawberries, tangy onion and nutty pecans topped off with this crazy good dressing is...heaven : )

Enjoy.  Really...sit back, close your eyes and enjoy : )

*if you don't have a Trader Joe's near you, a Lemon Poppyseed dressing or a Balsamic Vinaigrette would be good too.
