Ingredients

How to make it

  • Fry bacon and drain, reserving bacon fat. (Its quick to just slice some hunks of bacon off the end of the package, then it's already diced.)
  • Add water, sugar, salt and pepper to drippings and bring to a boil.
  • Add vinegar (to taste!) and cool mixture slightly.
  • When ready to serve, pour hot dressing over the lettuce leaves that have been torn into bite sized pieces.
  • Sprinkle with bacon and toss. (Just be sure that lettuce isn't cold!)

    Now I found your recipe - slightly different measurements, but basically the same salad...just goes to show there are soooo many small variations to this wonderful wilted salad. I think it must have been a summer "staple" of the earlier generations that relied on their garden produce - good, good stuff...and you're right - you never throw away ANY of this salad when it's served...it's just eaten until it's gone!
