I lost my recipe for wilted lettuce, and found a new one here. This one includes a hard boiled egg, which my husband loved, good recipe.

An interesting concept of hot salad dressing. It was wonderfully delicious, yet so easy to prepare. I don't like the taste of raw onion, therefore I marinated the sliced onion in the vinegar mixture for a couple minutes. Removed the onion before boiling the mixture. I also used olive oil instead of bacon drippings. I sure will make this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

I prepared this according to the directions. It was easy, but a little too salty for my taste. Without the added salt, I think this would be great.

This recipe is excellent. Just the right amount of sweet and sour for our taste buds. Thanks for creating memories of fresh lettuce from the garden in the springtime. I used pre-cooked bacon to reduce the bad fat, and used olive oil to increase the fat content. It was delicious.

Wow! I have a ton of fresh lettuce in the garden to use for this. Love the dressing! Next time hopefully I'll have fresh onions and tomatoes to add. Thanks!

The BEST wilted lettuce salad ever. I doubled the dressing except the bacon grease, left the same. and added more black pepper. I have made many times!

This is just so good and so simple to make. The only change I made because of personal preference was I used rice vinegar and splenda to cut some of the calories. Just wonderful. Was the hit of our Valentine Dinner. Thanks. Made for the I Recommend Tag Game :)

This was super easy and yummy! I omitted the onion and egg. My husband and son were skeptical at first when they smelled the vinegar but devoured it. :D
