Wilted Lettuce Salad - Grandma Lena

E. Marie

Serves 4

My Grandma Lena used to make wilted lettuce salad ... this is a very simple version! You can always add diced scallions, sliced radishes, dry mustard, etc. to make it more elegant ... my "Pop" (my grandad) loved this plain salad with bread & butter! Try it, it's very old, you may like it too!

  • 3-4 slices of bacon
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 3 T. vinegar
  • 1 head of Iceberg lettuce

Fry bacon till crisp; remove & drain. Add sugar & vinegar to the drippings; mix well. Quarter lettuce and separate leaves. Add lettuce to mixture in the skillet; toss over low heat until the lettuce is welted. Crumble the bacon into the lettuce. Serve.
