It was really tasty too!

      Note: Serve with pita crisps, kettle chips or toast points made from very thin slices of bread brushed with olive oil.

      1. Place the bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat; cook, turning, until crisp, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel.

      2. Combine the onions, mayonnaise, yogurt, arugula, salt and pepper to taste in a food processor; pulse until chunky, about 5 times. Transfer to a medium bowl. Crumble the bacon into the bowl; stir into the mayonnaise mixture. Stir in the tomatoes.
