Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set on paper towels to drain. Leave the drippings in the skillet.
  2. Add the sugar, vinegar, water, salt, and pepper, and the garlic and celery seed to the drippings in the skillet. Stir and simmer over medium heat until well blended.
  3. Tear the lettuce leaves into pieces. Don't cut the lettuce, as this causes the edges to darken. Place the lettuce in a large salad bowl and crumble in the bacon. Scatter the thinly sliced red onion rings on top of the lettuce. Pour the hot dressing over the lettuce, toss, and cover the bowl with a plate for a few minutes. Remove the plate, add the eggs and radishes, and toss the salad again. Serve immediately.
