“Growing up in the North Carolina mountains, everyone knew what killed lettuce was and how to fix it. This is my mom's recipe, and it is very simple and basic. In the south it is usually served with pinto beans and cornbread.” - by shann

- Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Place the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.
- Add the chopped green onions to the bacon grease; cook and stir for about a minute or until the onions reach your desired tenderness. Pour the onions and bacon grease over the lettuce and toss lightly. Crumble the bacon and add it to the lettuce. Serve immediately.

"I grew up with a different version of this recipe and we still enjoy it. First of all it's much easier to cut the bacon into small pieces before you fry it. It takes less time and cooks evenly. I d..." See moreon't toss my onions in the bacon grease, just sprinkle them over the salad before adding the hot dressing. I only use about 2 Tbsp. of the bacon fat and add about 1/4 apple cider vinegar, ground black pepper and sugar (to taste, we like it pretty sweet). Heat until the sugar dissolves in the vinegar and bacon fat. Pour hot mixture over the greens and enjoy. It's less fat and gives it a little bite from the vinegar although it does add sugar to the mix. It's delicious."
"Similar to a brussel sprout recipe I found on here a while back but this is just bland. It got considerably better with the addition of salt, pepper & hot sauce...." See more"
