Grandma always had fresh lettuce in her vegetable garden; this was a daily dish during the spring and fall months. Because they stay crisp, romaine leaves are great to use for this recipe also.
- 1 head lettuce leaves, washed and drained
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar or Splenda
Method 1 - In a medium bowl combine vinegar, water and sugar. Stir with a whisk until sugar is dissolved. Pour over cleaned lettuce leaves and toss to mix well. Then sprinkle additional sugar on top of the leaves.
Method 2 - Sprinkle undiluted vinegar directly on the leaves according to taste and toss. Sprinkle sugar directly over the leaves and toss lightly. Chill and Serve when ready to eat.
