Bacon and Fozzies Shopping Around the World for May

Okay - we nearly forgot our 'Shopping around the world' post but here it is. Bacon asked us to do a five ingredient salad - now Mom is taking a liberty with the meaning of "5" here and is assuming it means 5 ingredients per person :) :) :)  Sorry Bacon - we just couldn't do a mere 5 ingredients in one salad. This is enough to make at least 4 meal sized salads with some things left over but to make just enough for one person Mom has added the amounts in brackets. Now our Mom loves some crunch and sweetness to her salad so although she uses the same basic ingredients she also swaps it up with taco strips or potato straws, different types of nuts, dried craisins or dried blueberries and yummy mandarin segments.

So lets start - Momma's Crunchy Sweet Salad

1.Chopped salad kit that has a variety of lettuce and a wonderful sweet onion and citrus vinaigrette - it is all one packet so it counts as 1 item - $3.30  (1 1/2 cups)
2. Italian 5 cheese - $2.50 (1/4 cup)
3.Mini Cucumber $2.14 (1 chopped)
4.Honey roasted pecans $2.49 (2 tablespoons - chopped)
5.Matchstick carrots $1.29 (1/4 cup)
6.Sunflower kernels $1.49 (2 tablespoons)
7.Mini corn nuggets $0.99 (6 pieces) - Mom normally puts Craisins in but she had run out those.
8.Celery $0.79 (1 stick chopped)
9.Tomato's $2.49 a pound (1/2 a tomato)
10 BACON - $4.47 for 1 1/2 pounds (Don't look at this ingredient Bacon!!!) (2 slices cooked until crunchy and crumbled over the top)

Mom says YUM
We say make it an all bacon salad - with a side of bacon
