This recipe is more than 100 years old. If my father were alive, he would be 98 years old, & this recipe was made by his mother (my grandmother). Every summer on the farm, we made Wilted Lettuce Greens. We would pick the lettuce, onions & radishes from our garden & make this salad fresh, One year, my sister picked the lettuce & proceeded to wash it in a colander in the sink. After making the salad, we sat down to lunch. My sister sat next to my father & began eating her salad. Little did she know that a fat, green garden worm had crawled out of my father’s salad. Without saying a word, he plopped the greasy worm into the middle of my sister’s plate & just kept on eating his salad.
