Diane Sanfilippo Soups & Salads 6 Comments

We’re heading into strawberry season and bacon is always in season (am I right?!), so why not combine the two? Better yet, this easy salad can be made in under 5 minutes if you already have some leftover bacon, but then again, who has leftover bacon?

I’ve made butternut squash soup many times in my day, but I can’t say it’s always come out as well as I’d imagined it would.
