My mother loved the outdoors and especially enjoyed working in her garden. When she served this salad, she would first prepare the dressing. The last thing she would do is go out to the garden to pick some lettuce. Mother timed all of this to serve my dad the freshest salad ever.

"The bacon really adds great flavor to this salad. I was looking for a recipe similar to my husband's Grandma's wilted salad. This was almost exact. I will definitely make again."
