Wilted Lettuce

This is an old recipe that my family has used for many generations. Who knows it may just show up on the dinner table for Thanksgiving

Take a large bunch of leafy lettuce. Shred loosely in large bowl. Sprinkle salt over. In frying pan, fry quartered strips of bacon - just crisp. Then add 1/4 cup vinegar, 2 tablespoons sugar and 3/4 cup water. Bring to a roaring boil and quickly pour over lettuce, stir quickly and cover until wilted. Garnish with sliced green onions and radishes.

  1. That sounds yummy. It may show up on our Thanksgiving table too.

  2. My grandma loved wilted/cooked lettuce. It's very frugal, too. Thank you for participating in Vintage Recipe Thursday.
