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.
