Jinx's Wilted Lettuce Salad
|1||head green or red leaf lettuce (or a combination)|
|1||red onion, peeled and sliced|
|1||hard boiled egg|
|½||cup sliced mushrooms (optional)|
|¾||cup cider vinegar|
|2 ½||tablespoons sugar, or to taste|
Wash and dry leaf lettuce; tear into large pieces and place in a large serving bowl. Separate onion slices into rings and mix into lettuce. Slice egg in an egg slicer, then turn and slice in opposite direction; mix into lettuce along with mushrooms.
Meanwhile, fry bacon in a medium skillet until crisp. Drain bacon on paper towel and crumble into salad. Pour out all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings.
Mix water, vinegar and sugar together to form a sweet-sour mixture. Pour into skillet and heat over medium-high heat until hot. Stir gently, but do not scrape up bacon bits from pan. When mixture is hot, pour over salad greens. Toss gently and serve immediately.
Recipe serves 6-8.
