Wilted Green Salad

"My husband refused to eat wilted lettuce until I read this recipe suggested by a friend," says field editor La Vonne Hegland of St. Michael, Minnesota. "He likes this milder dressing with just a subtle hint of vinegar. Turkey bacon adds a satisfying crunch."

    This salad was delicious and low fat.delicious! I am usually not a vinegar and oil dressing fan but this one was very good. I added a hard boiled egg to my salad and used regular bacon.

    I love the idea of adding turkey bacon to this salad for a healthier version of this. Super easy and quick to put together. Great for busy weeknights or weekends. Will definitely try this again.
