I like to add a touch of pickled peppers for mild heat to this salad.


  • 6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 pound maple bacon fried and diced
  • 1 cup chopped grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons diced pickled jalapenos
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup bottled ranch salad dressing


  1. Add the lettuce, bacon, tomatoes, green onions, and jalapenos to a large bowl.
  2. Top with 1/4 cup of dressing and toss to coat. Add more dressing as needed to dress to your liking.
  3. Serve immediately.
