Bacon with a side of Salad

Another food post, lucky you! Trying to take more pictures of what I've been cooking. I'll get there slowly but surely.

This recipe is part idea from a friend and part made-it-up with what sounded good and what I had. Very easy, light, cool, salad (read good for you) and bacon (ok, not that great for you)

Bacon with a side of Salad

half a head of romain lettuce, rough chopped (or lettuce of your liking)
about 1 1/2 cups miracle whip mayonnaise
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 a cucumber, sliced 
2 packages raw ramen noodles, broken up
about half a pound of bacon, cooked and chopped

Put chopped lettuce in a bowl. In a side bowl, mix miracle whip and sugar. Taste, if you want, and see if it needs more sugar. It shouldn't be super sweet, but you should be able to taste a subtle difference rather than just the normal miracle whip. Add broken up ramen noodles to lettuce, and sliced cucumber. Next, when you are ready to serve, add miracle whip dressing on salad, turn lettuce mixture over trying to coat everything. Don't "toss" too much. Add bacon at last. You can add onion if you want, I think that was in the recipe I found but I'm not a raw onion kind of person. 

This is pretty good the next day, though the crunchy ramen noodles are no longer crunchy, but still good.
