Went down memory lane with this one. This is the only way my mom ever fixed lettuce when we were kids. My grandma made it the same way. Mom used mayo and leaf lettuce from her garden if she did'nt have iceberg lettuce, and grandma made it with cream. I liked my grandma's the best.
My DH enjoyed this lettuce salad a lot but for me it was missing a bit of tang. My aunt used to make this with mayonnaise or salad dressing so I think that is the flavor I would have liked to have tasted. I used one large bunch of romaine lettuce that I rinsed well and wrapped in a towel to dry and did not need to add the milk. This is a quick side dish that would be nice with a bbq or summer picnic.
