Killed Lettuce and Onion
July 13, 2011

I grew up with a different version of this recipe and we still enjoy it. First of all it's much easier to cut the bacon into small pieces before you fry it. It takes less time and cooks evenly. I don't toss my onions in the bacon grease, just sprinkle them over the salad before adding the hot dressing. I only use about 2 Tbsp. of the bacon fat and add about 1/4 apple cider vinegar, ground black pepper and sugar (to taste, we like it pretty sweet). Heat until the sugar dissolves in the vinegar and bacon fat. Pour hot mixture over the greens and enjoy. It's less fat and gives it a little bite from the vinegar although it does add sugar to the mix. It's delicious.
