You won’t believe how incredible this simple combination of crunchy almonds, crisp bacon, and tender asparagus and arugula is. It’s a game changer. The arugula will wilt as it sits, though, so serve it right away.

What a fabulous salad recipe. I made this for my annual formal Christmas dinner party and we all gobbled it up. It's easy and so full of flavor. Very unusual salad. I didn't use all the dressing, it didn't need it. I will make this again and again.
My mom has made this salad for dinner an average of twice a week for the last 3 months or so. I'm not even kidding.
This was very good, but the bacon fat in the dressing was a little too heavy for me. Next time I will probably drain the fat from the pan after doing the asparagus, maybe leave just a little.
Wonderful interplay of tastes and textures and came together very quickly. I used half as much bacon as the recipe called for and it was utterly delicious. I will make this again and again.
