Chicken and Bacon Salad

Chicken and Bacon Salad blends the uniquely different textures and flavors of the two main ingredients by the use of grapes, parsley, onion and ginger and the end result is near perfection in a salad. Although it isn't mentioned in the recipe I also add toasted pine nuts to give some crunch when making it for my family. Submitted by David McCarthy, Australia
