Wilted Lettuce and Onions
This is an Appalachian spring rite of passage. I've used Splenda to try to help with sugar control, and add olive oil to try to lighten it up a bit. I'm also had this with lettuce, dandelion greens and plantin from the yard. Usually this or ramps are the first greens hill folk would have in the spring of the year. Match it with some good cornbread and what a meal you'll have, just like grandpaw use to eat!!
