Now that it’s summer, I keep seeing recipes for cucumber salads. They look light and refreshing and all, but you know what I really need? Bacon. Yes, like many people I’m a bacon fanatic and I believe it really could be added to anything. In fact, last Christmas my family got my bacon lip gloss. Surprisingly, you can’t add bacon flavor to lip gloss. Well, you can, but you shouldn’t. However, you really can’t go wrong adding bacon to a recipe, am I right?
There’s something about pairing the saltiness of bacon with the refreshing lightness of cucumbers that really drives a one-two punch for this recipe. You’ll get the feeling of a traditional cucumber salad, but a salty flavor that will WOW your taste buds. Perhaps it’s your body knowing how good for you cucumbers are, but how sinful bacon can be.

Quick Tip: Prepare all ingredients before hand, but heat the bacon and stir into salad right before serving for a fun warm/cold mixture.
