Wilted Lettuce Salad

Wilted Salad Recipe

When I’m not hanging out updating my deeConstructed Facebook page, I’m cracking up at all the funny puppy photos that fill my personal news feed. One of my favorite ‘people’ to follow is this little Frenchie named Bubba Louie. Bubba has a ton of puppy pals and they chat all the time. The other day, Bubba started a photo chain so he could have all his friend’s faces in one spot. Oooh the ooey gooeyness of Frenchie & Boston mugs that filled that thread melted my heart!

One pup, Rocco, stood out to me and his mama sent me a friend request. Turns out, Katie and I have a lot in common. When I saw a pic of the dinner she was preparing, I mentioned the fare share posts and she sent me her favorite recipe saying “my parents have made it for a long time, and now I make it for my husband”.

Wilted Salad Recipe

– 4 bacon strips, cut up
– 1/4 cup white vinegar
– 2 tablespoons water
– 4-6 green onions with tops, sliced
– 2 teaspoons sugar
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1/4 teaspoon pepper
– 2 heads red and green leaf lettuce
– 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
– 1 hard-boiled egg, chopped

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, move to paper towels to drain. To the hot bacon grease, add the vinegar, water, sugar, salt and pepper, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Place lettuce, tomatoes, bacon pieces, and onion in a large salad bowl; immediately pour dressing over and toss lightly. Top with egg.

Katie says she sometimes microwaves the whole thing right before serving. Don’t you love making new friends who know how to cook? I do! Especially when we can share pictures and stories of our pups…doesn’t this make your heart smile?

Gah, I just can’t get enough of those shmooshed faces. Speaking of, my guy is hanging out in the spare room now that the bed is finally cleared off (and accessible). I’m heading back in there to finish up some cool corner book shelves I designed and put the finishing touches on the room since Sonne will be here on Sunday, er Son-day?


If you haven’t already, ‘like’ my page on Facebook so you can follow along with the play-by-play updates because I have no idea when the crazy-ness will make its way to the blog.

One thought on “Wilted Lettuce Salad

  1. That salad sounds so yummy! I will have to make it for Chris and I very soon. Just don't tell my niece she is in love with pigs and frowns when ever we eat bacon. 😀

It's so quiet in here - please, say something!
