Necessity is the mother of invention and that is exactly how this salad came to be. Due to a power outage we were not able to get the bacon that we originally had planned to us in this salad so we were forced to rummage in the fridge, we turned up a package of pastrami and in all honesty I think we will take it this way from now on!
