      This is my son-in-laws favorite salad, which was prepared by his grandmother on many holiday occasions. It's now our families favorite as well. I did modify the ingredients, so it could easily be made by others. My son-in-law had told me, that when this salad was placed on the dinner table along with the tradtional holiday fixins', it was this salad that everyone would reach for first, and I can see why, as this salad is so good. It's also what my family reaches for first at the dinner table as well. And I'm not kidding!


      Grandma Richter's Wilted Lettuce Salad

      salad ingredients:
      12 cups (8-ounces) romaine lettuce (*See note)
      11 slices hickory smoked bacon, cooked and crumbled
      2-1/2 tablespoons diced onion
      creamy dressing ingredients:
      1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, plus 2 tablespoons
      1/4 cup sugar, plus 1 tablespoon
      1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, plus 1 tablespoon
      ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... .....

      Place salad ingredients into a very large bowl. (I put mine into a 13 cup size Tupperware bowl.)

      In another bowl, add the creamy dressing ingredients. Stir thoroughly to blend the ingredients together.

      Pour the creamy dressing, a little at a time, over the salad, and stir gently to combine.

      Once the creamy dressing has been completely mixed into the salad, serve the salad immediately.

      Servings, about 5 adult size portions.

      *Note: When making this salad, you can pretty much use any type of lettuce, but my daughter and I agree, we much prefer using romaine lettuce; picked fresh from ones garden, but you can use store bought lettuce, even the iceberg lettuce. Also, when adding the leaves to the bowl, I pretty much left the leaves whole, except for the leaves that were a bit too large, then I tore those in half.
