Killed Salad aka Wilted Salad

Ingredients:  4 in salad    5 in dressing

Salad:  this can be made ahead.

1 bag (10-16 ounces) salad greens or fresh spinach – wash and dry (I use salad spinner)      2-4 slices of bacon, sliced in 1/4 “, fried til crisp, save the bacon grease in skillet               1/4 sweet onion (like Vidalia) or 3-4 green onions sliced (white and green)                            3 hard boiled eggs

Dressing:  make this just before you want to eat it.

2-3 Tbsp bacon grease in skillet                                                                                                         1 tsp sugar                                                                                                                                               1/2 tsp salt and fresh pepper to taste                                                                                             3-4 Tbsp vinegar (I use cider; do not use flavored vinegar)

Time to put it together:

Put all dressing ingredients in skillet with onion (ad prefer to cook the onion a bit but onion can be left uncooked because it is mild).  Put greens and chopped egg in big salad bowl; mix a little.  Heat dressing to bubbling and very quickly pour over greens and onions while mixing so that you “KILL” lots of greens not just the ones on top.  Mix well and add bacon bits for final stir.
