Disclosure - I am not a cooking person (understatement!).

Had to eat leaf lettuce when I was a kid. Its limp lifeless leaves would stick to the roof of my mouth, back of my throat and gag me. Never eaten it since, cool crisp Iceberg for me!

Wondering about the Wilted Lettuce Salad - pouring the bacon "drippings" over it is all grease, right? Was this a Southern-poor type of food? I don't know, I'm asking.

Hell no! I was raised in the north. Really, as a salad you don't get the impression that the salad is greasy. It's just the flavor of the bacon and the drippings that make the salad. I've found a number of restaurants having it on the menu. The recipe posted on this thread sounds great. But to my poster friend REWahoo, it's still not "cooked" lettuce, it's just "wilted".

I think every recipe I like starts with olive oil, garlic, and onions!
