We really love this salad! I made exactly as written, except I doubled the amount of dressing because it felt like we didn't have enough the first time I made it. I think it would be even better with grilled corn. I found the proportions to be just right. The tartness of the dressing was tempered by the salty bacon. I may or may not reduce the amount of lemon juice just a tad next time- I thought it was a little tart at the very end but my husband thought it was perfect.
