    Garden Leaf lettuce ...help

    We have been enjoying wilted lettuce salad with our garden leaf lettuce. But you can only eat so much bacon grease.... it is good, but not healthy.

    Does anyone have a good recipe for garden leaf lettuce.
    Thanks

    My recipe has mayonaise, which also has oil. (You could use a low fat mayo. though I don't.) I make a dressing with 3 Tablespoons of mayo, 1 T. milk , 1 or 2 T. Balsemic vinegar, crushed clove of garlic, 1 t. sugar. Mix well and stir into the salad leaves gently, chill about 15 minutes before serving.

    My Mom always made wilted lettuce . She would fry and drain bacon. then crumble it. add buttermilk and heat. pour iver your lettuce. It is delicious! And I don't even like buttermilk.

    You can make a wilted lettuce salad with any kind of viniagrette. Just heat it and pout it over your lettuce. I like a nice balsamic viniagrette over spinach. yum.

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    I use leaf lettuce from the garden to make just a regular salad. I chop up carrots, green onions,mushrooms, all colors of peppers, hard boiled egg, ham and turkey slices, cheese and fresh spinach and make it a meal!

    My go to recipe for leaf lettuce isn't exactly low calorie either but my family loves it. I mix about 1/4 cup Miracle Whip, 1/8 cup of brown sugar and just enough vinegar to make it more liquids (kind of the thickness of pancake syrup) and drizzle it over the leaf lettuce spread out on the plate. MMMMMMM, leaf lettuce!

    My grandmother used this recipe for leaf lettuce salad. Take a small can of Carnation condensed milk, add 1 tablespoon of sugar, enough white vinegar - add slowly and stir- to make the milk curdle. Too much or too little vinegar and it will not work, and it isn't instant. The milk will become very smooth and thick and tangy/sweet. Pour over lettuce which has been torn and twisted into bite sized pieces. Very different, very good.

    If you buy the Helmmann's mayo made with olive oil, it is fine for you. It is the jar with the green lid.
