Recipe of the Week: Hot Salad Dressing (a.k.a. Wilted Lettuce Dressing), by CB


  • 4 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Fry bacon slowly; save grease.
  2. In a saucepan, combine sugar, salt, and cornstarch. Mix thoroughly; add beaten egg and vinegar, mixing well again.
  3. Add milk, crumbled bacon, and bacon grease.
  4. Cook to a desired thickness.
  5. Cool before (or not) pouring over salad greens, such as one head of lettuce chopped, spinach, dandelion leaves, plantain (pig ear) leaves, and/or salad greens. In the spring time, this is great with dandelion or plantain.

We have a saying here: “Remember where the huskies go, so you don’t eat no yellow snow.” Wash your harvested, wild, spring greens thoroughly. This stores well under refrigeration.
