Ingredients

  • 1 head leaf lettuce - rinsed, dried, and torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 pound fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 pound fresh blueberries
  • 1 mango, peeled, seeded, and cut into strips
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 4 slices bacon

Directions

  1. Toss the lettuce, strawberries, blueberries, mango, tomatoes, raisins, almonds, and onions together in a salad bowl. Cover, and refrigerate at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle. Do not refrigerate more than 4 hours.
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crisp and evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Crumble and sprinkle over the salad to serve.
