Pennsylvania Dutch Sweet and Sour Dressing......


I like Pennsylvania Dutch cooking and especially the vintage recipes. This is a recipe my Gram made in the summer time for wilted lettuce. It was always a favorite of my Gramp and me. It's a very simple sweet and sour dressing. A pile of wilted lettuce with hard boiled egg slices was a popular summer salad from my childhood. I hope you enjoy it as well.
Pennsylvania Dutch Sweet and Sour Dressing 
Fry several (2-3) strips of bacon, fried crisp and crumbled.
Add to the bacon grease:
1/4 cup vinegar
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup sugar, or to taste
dash of salt
Bring to a boil, pour over fresh garden lettuce.
Adjust the sugar to your own taste.
Till next time......
