    Wilted Leaf Salad

    It's Spring time and fresh leaf lettuce is about ready to pick. Pardon me if I've posted this before, but this is one of the most delicious Summer dishes that you would ever want. Couple it with a big old thick Rib Eye medium rare just off the grill, and you have a meal fit for a king. It's pretty popular in this neck of the woods; and I'm betting you Yankees will like it too...especially if you have a garden or can get tender leaf lettuce...and I'll tell you now, it's even better than Okra! Be careful; don't burn yourself or set the kitchen on fire.


    SHARN JEAN'S WILTED LEAF LETTUCE SALAD

    Ingredients

    2 or 3 eggs, boiled and sliced
    Bowl of fresh leaf lettuce, washed and drained in colander
    ¼ cup sugar (approximate)
    4 slices smoked bacon
    several fresh green onions and radishes
    ½ cup cider vinegar
    ¼ cup water
    Boil your eggs, cool them and slice.
    Fry the bacon crispy and remove the skillet from the burner.
    Drain, cool and crumble the bacon, and set aside the bacon drippings.
    Slice the onions and radishes.
    Remove the drained lettuce from the colander to a large salad bowl, and sprinkle with sugar;
    Mix the vinegar and water and add to the bacon drippings. Heat to boiling, and immediately pour over
    the lettuce to wilt.
    Add the eggs, onions, radishes, bacon bits and salt and pepper to taste. Toss and serve immediately.
    (Note: you will probably want to adjust the sugar/vinegar to your own taste)
    This is my particular favorite. It does require a bit of art, but you should be able to get it right after a
    couple of times. Make sure the vinegar/bacon drippings get very hot, and are poured over
    immediately. The lettuce should be as fresh and tender as possible. I have never eaten a bad batch.
    After a hard day in the yard, just open up a cool beer, put a thick rib eye on the grill and get ready for a
    meal fit for a king. Time the steak, a platter of fried okra and the wilted leaf salad to come off about the
    same time…it doesn’t get much better than this. I couldn’t recommend it more highly.
