Description: This is a wonderful, tangy salad that pleases all of your taste buds! It is also a great salad to have when you have a cold, feeling congested, or just not feeling your best. My Mom has been making this since I can remember at about 6 years old. I just love it & hope you will too!

6  Green Onions w/tops Thinly Sliced

2. To the hot bacon drippings, add the vinegar, lemon juice, sugar and pepper. Stir over medium heat until hot.
3. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce and green onions. Add the warm dressing and toss to evenly coat. Sprinkle with bacon and serve.

    I haven't had this in ages. I have always loved my mom's wilted lettuce. Thanks for reminding me. I don't think she used red wine vinegar or lemon juice. I think she used regular vinegar. Yum! I just might have to make this very soon. Thanks!
