Wilted Lettuce Salad

People often think of salads as strictly summertime foods, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use your spring produce if you’re craving something a little heartier. Try this recipe for a wilted lettuce salad with your next meal. Wilted lettuce is a common side dish in many southern homes, and its simple appeal is making it a favorite in the northern states as well.

You’ll need:

  • 1 head of leaf lettuce or an equivalent amount of assorted salad greens, washed and dried
  • 6–8 green onions with tops, sliced thin
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 2 tbsp vinegar (red wine or apple cider preferred)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • ½ tsp black pepper

Put it together simply:

  1. Tear up the greens, and place them in a large bowl with the onions. Set aside.
  2. Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet until done. Remove and let cool.
  3. Add the vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, and pepper to the bacon drippings in the skillet. Cook and stir until the mixture is hot.
  4. Pour the bacon grease dressing over the greens and onions, and toss.
  5. Crumble the bacon and sprinkle over the salad before serving.
