Another daughter of a Southern Woman recipe. This is the taste of summer!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut up lettuce and onion tops, place in a large bowl.
  2. Place bacon on top of lettuce.
  3. Have all the rest of the ingredients ready, because this goes quickly!
  4. Pour out all but 3T. of the bacon grease.
  5. Set the skillet on medium heat and add the cream, salt and sugar.
  6. From this point you will be whisking constantly.
  7. Heat the cream until it begins to steam - don't let it bubble.
  8. Add the vinegar slowly, whisking constantly until the mixture begins to steam.
  9. Pour the mixture over the lettuce, toss and serve immediatly.
  10. Make sure you have some good bread to soak up the leftover juices - trust me, folks will fight for the last drops!
  11. Note: All the whisking is to keep the dressing from "breaking", or separating. If it does, no problem. It's not as pretty, but it still tastes fabulous.
