an ingredient does matter!~

i did not have it and tried to substitute with something else, the pepper cured, hardwood smoked, Virginia bacon.  I used regular bacon and it added nothing, but the salad itself is so outstanding that it did not matter!

Lobster salad:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon fennel bulb, diced
1 tablespoon celery stalk, diced
1 teaspoon minced tarragon (also in my garden)
1 1+ pound lobster, steam for 15 minutes and refrigerate till cold

Remove all the lobster meat (claws and tail and any juice)
cut lobster into 1/2 to 1 inch chunks.
mix well and salt to taste, keep cold
top with crisp pepper cured Virginia bacon bits
