    Darlene Summers's Note:

    This was my ma's recipe passed on to me--don't know any other way to make it and I'm 58 years old. This is really an old-fashioned dish.

      I luv this. Our recipe is a little different. It's a meal within itself, almost. We cook bacon until crisp. Boil a potato and cut up. Add asparagus (canned) and chopped boiled egg. mix all together and add the heated bacon/vinegar dressing.

      We make ours a little differently here in the Ozarks - we scramble a couple of eggs and mix in with the greens before adding the dressing. We also don't use the sugar. My mom always makes this when she makes fresh deep-fried white or black bass. She serves with pan-fried potatoes and cornbread! It's a traditional family meal. Thanks for posting!
