Mom's Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by eb4352

Modified from my mother-in-law's recipe. I always wash the lettuce and break it up and spin the water off and put in fridge to crisp. I've had folks offer to trade a steak for this salad!

This would have gotten 5 stars if the ingredient "Splenda" had been removed and replaced with sugar or stevia. I prefer to use natural food in my recipes and the jury is still out on this Splenda. I substituted sugar and it was delightful! This is a good, simple, refreshing salad and you should try it (just leave out the chemicals).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean and spin off excess water then chill the lettuce.
  2. In bottom of a large salad bowl put Splenda, garlic powder and pepper then add oil, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Mix thoroughly and then do a taste test to determine if it needs tweaking ie, needs more sugar, oil, etc.
  3. When the lettuce is crisp, put in bowl and sprinkle blue cheese and bacon bits on top.
  4. Toss all ingredients together until lettuce is completely coated with the dressing mixture.
  5. My boys love this!
