1 pound bacon
1 pound bacondiced
Large bowl of fresh leaf lettuce washed and dried
3 to 4 green onions thinly diced
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar optional
Sliced radish optional
This is about as simple a recipe as it gets. Render the bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove and reserve the bacon.
Keep the bacon grease hot over low to medium heat. Whisk in red wine vinegar, if desired.
Pick, wash, and dry enough leaf lettuce for the number of salads you wish to make.
Place the lettuce in a bowl or on a plate. Drizzle over 1 to 2 tablespoons of hot bacon grease. The grease should sputter and pop a bit when it hits the lettuce and the leaf should wilt just a bit. Toss well.
Top with reserved bacon, diced green onion, and sliced radish, if desired. Serve immediately while the bacon grease is still warm.
