Yes, we Southerners do like wilted lettuce. This is a great salad to serve. I used red leaf and green leaf lettuce. The red leaf added a pretty color. Be sure and serve this dish immediately. Thanks for sharing, Sharon!

Simple and tasty. I did add a little sugar (not quite 1 tsp) and I loved the tangy flavor. I sprinkled just a tad of red pepper flakes over the salad. This is a perfect side dish for a complex main dish. Thanx for sharing!

This was our traditional family salad, from my Dad's side of the family in Kentucky. Goes well with any meal, tangy, I use splenda.
