Chicken Salad with Bacon

Tomorrow marks the very unofficial holiday known as International Bacon Day. Masterminded in 2005 by a bunch of UC Boulder graduate students who loved all sorts of bacon (the food and the actor), the occasion is celebrated by eating bacon, watching Kevin Bacon (or movies featuring pigs) and generally appreciating all things crispy, fatty and meaty. You can quietly salute their brilliance—without spending one of the last summer weekends indoors—by making fast baby brioches with chicken salad and applewood-smoked bacon for a delicious Labor Day party.
