    Tom Collins's Note:

    Sometimes the simple things are the best...Another one of the recipes that I grew up with way back when... If you don't grow your own, you can get leaf lettuce at a produce stand, a farmer's market or many grocery stores carry it...

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put the Mayonnaise, Vinegar and Sugar into a bowl and stir until mixed --
    2. 2
      Place in the refrigerator to allow the ingredients to blend and to allow time for the sugar to dissolve --
    3. 3
      Remove the individual leaves from the main plant -- Do not cut, pull them apart --
    4. 4
      Rinse each leaf under cold water and shake excess water off the leaves --
    5. 5
      Remove the tender portion of the leaf from the stalk and discard the stalk --
    6. 6
      'Tear' leaves into whatever size you think will fit into your mouth --
    7. 7
      This is enough dressing for about half a large bunch of lettuce -- Remaining lettuce can be stored in the refrigerater, covered, for use tomorrow --
    8. 8
      Start by tossing a third or so of the lettuce with the dressing and add lettuce until the lettuce is coated well with the dressing -- (you don't want a pool of sauce in the bottom of the bowl but you want the lettuce well coated) --
    9. 9
      This is best if the lettuce is mixed with the dressing just prior to eating -- The flavor won't change but the lettuce tends to get soggy after about an hour after mixed with the dressing -- .

      Great basic salad. For me something was missing. Probably a few seasoning. It could be great with tomatoes and cucumber in it. Thanks Tom Collins :) Made for All you can cook buffet
