How to Make Grandma Richter's Wilted Lettuce Salad
- Place salad ingredients into a very large bowl. (I put mine into a 13 cup size Tupperware bowl.)
- In another bowl, add the creamy dressing ingredients. Stir thoroughly to blend the ingredients together.
- Pour the creamy dressing, a little at a time, over the salad, and stir gently to combine.
- Once the creamy dressing has been completely mixed into the salad, serve the salad immediately.
- *Note: When making this salad, you can pretty much use any type of lettuce, but my daughter and I agree, we much prefer using romaine lettuce; picked fresh from ones garden, but you can use store bought lettuce, even the iceberg lettuce. Also, when adding the leaves to the bowl, I pretty much left the leaves whole, except for the leaves that were a bit too large, then I tore those in half.
