A salad?! On Sauce + Style?! I know it's a bit shocking to see something on the healthy side pop up here, but being on a teeny tiny cleanse inspired me to up my salad game. With bacon of course.

Normally I am NOT a salad person (as in I avoid it at all costs), but when a salad combines all my favorite things, I'll change my stance on it momentarily. This BBQ Ranch Chopped Salad is the perfect example of what'll get me in a salad-eating mood. Yes, this salad is loaded up with some healthy veggies, but there's also bacon and a BBQ ranch dressing that is going to blow your freaking mind.

Seriously, this salad is so good you'll actually find yourself CRAVING it. So wrong, it's gotta be right ;) am I right?
