My Mom’s Wilted Lettuce

Adjust to how much lettuce you are wilting:

Fill a bowl with fresh garden lettuce and 5 or 6 chopped green onions and set aside.

Fry 4 strips of bacon until golden crisp.

Put 4 Tbsp. bacon drippings in skillet, add ½ cup water, 3 Tbsp. sugar and 3 or 4 Tbsp. vinegar and about 1 tsp. salt.

Boil for a few minutes and then pour over the bowl of fresh lettuce and onions.

You might need to do this to suit your taste. Until I got it to taste like my husband, Steve, liked it, I had to add to, or take away until I got it right.
