My Mom's Wilted Lettuce

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Darlene Summers

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.
