This recipe was a total accident!! I was making wilted lettuce from another recipe and misread the ingredients not realizing it until the salad was gone and everybody was talking about how good it was....sometimes an accident can make the best recipe!!

I love wilted-lettuce salad and this one did not disappoint! Made as written using bagged romaine hearts already chopped. I ate almost the whole recipe for dinner, minus the little bit DH had! Going into my best of cookbook! Made for Best of 2011 Cookbook Tag.

Fabulous! Not happy with the fat content for a salad, but it can't hurt occasionally! My ex-father-in-law used to do something similar to this. He didn't use green onions though. Loved the dressing. I think I may make this my new guilty pleasure. :) Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe. Made for PAC 2011.
