Salad brings Pine Tree State back to hotter (better) days while not fail, and notwithstanding it’s not summer once you’re reading this and therefore the best tomatoes you'll get your hands on are of the market selection, this dish doesn't let down.  

It’s an explosion of flavor, and a replacement twist on your classic sandwich. just like the sandwich, it’s quite straightforward to create, however it doesn’t even need you to cook your own bacon (more thereon later).
