This was what the Pennsylvania Germans called "wilted salad". It was one of the first recipes I was taught to make. When the dressing is warm, I pour it over the greens and set it aside while I prepare the rest of the meal. The heat wilts the greens, which are still slightly warm when served. -Patty Kile, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania.
