Why I Love This Recipe
Great as a stand alone wilted lettuce salad, or great as a foundation for adding optional toppings like nuts, cranberries, grilled onions, boiled eggs, chicken, swap out vinegar for a red wine vinaigrette, etc., or swap the lettuce for spinach or mixed power greens.
Healthier option: heat canola or olive oil in a pan, cooking onions, garlic, etc, add in the vinegar/sugar and a small portion (or none) of the bacon drippings, and pour over greens to wilt.
