 Tossed Wilted Lettuce Salad
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.

  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions
