This was terrific! I was looking for something to make with a big bunch of leftover baby mixed greens and this was perfect, even better than I remember my dad making. I did add a couple of chopped hard boiled eggs. I didn't know how much water to add so I didn't add any. Thanks so much for sharing, Grandma!
