2 tablespoons sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup water
1 medium head lettuce, room temperature, chopped (I used romaine lettuce)

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!
