1 (12 ounce) package bacon, cooked and cut into bite size pieces
3 tablespoons cider vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)
2 tablespoons sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup water
1 medium head lettuce, room temperature, chopped (I used romaine lettuce)
1 bunch green onions, diced

Fry bacon and remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel. Save bacon grease in the skillet.

Add water, sugar, salt and pepper to the bacon grease and bring to a boil. Boil 5 minutes. Add vinegar, mixing well and cool mixture slightly.

When ready to serve, add chopped lettuce, green onions and bacon to skillet and mix well with the dressing.

Serve immediately.

My hubby loves this stuff and he finally got me to make it for him! Not bad, I must say since I don't like vinegar but I really liked this! This is my MIL recipe and it was very easy to make! Nice crunchy bacon with a bacon-y taste throughout! The romaine lettuce worked well in this and the crunch of the green onions were perfect! I'm guessing the cider vinegar was much better than plain old vinegar! I had apple cider vinegar on hand so that is what I used! I cooked everything in my cast iron skillet and it turned out perfect! My hubby was one happy camper! Me too!

I have read on different websites that hard boiled eggs are also good in this and I bet it would be delicious! Hubby said NO WAY!
