Reviews forClassic Wilted Lettuce Salad
"Grew up eating very similar but you forgot to throw in some slice and fried new potatoes."
"Very easy & delicious recipe! I added an additional hard boiled egg as we like them."
"And what are we supposed to do with the bacon? Logically, I can figure it out, but you didn't include it in your instructions."
"Very good for a summer or hot day. Last a while ,for one person. My grandmother has made this for me when I was a kid."
