Sweet-Sour Lettuce Salad Recipe
This super-quick salad dressing is a breeze to shake up when you're in a hurry. "It's refreshing, slightly sweet flavor compliments fresh lettuce and crisp bacon bits quite nicely," remarks Lois Fetting of Nelson, Wisconsin.
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 3/4 cup half-and-half cream
- 8 cups torn salad greens
- 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
- In a jar with tight-fitting lid, combine the sugar, vinegar and water; shake until sugar is dissolved. Add cream; shake well. Just before serving, toss greens, bacon and dressing in a large bowl. Yield: 8 servings.

I was hesitant to try this because it smelled way too "vinegary" for my tastes. However, I went ahead and ate it and it was so good! I didn't add the bacon, but did add cheddar cheese. I will definitely be making this again! So glad I tried it!
