After some tweaking, this recipe turned out great! It's the kind of thing that is made from tradition, so everyone has their individual likes. My family called this wilted lettuce (Arkansas).
I made it as my mother did. I put the lettuce in a bowl and added raw green onion and a little bit of raw radish, cooked the bacon and let it drain. With the bacon fat still in the pan I added some apple cider vinegar and a little sugar, and got that real hot. I poured it over the lettuce and stuff, covered the bowl with the pan (upside down on the bowl), and let it sit a minute. Afterwards, I added the crumpled up bacon and stirred. It ends up being kind of sweet and sour. Mom and I used to make a meal out of this - we didn't need anything else. I've wanted to make this for a long time, but didn't remember how until I saw your recipe, and I thank you for that...
