Fresh varieties of lettuce are topped with a delicious dressing of bacon fat and vinegar - watch out for the popping and snapping when the hot grease "kills" the moisture-filled lettuce!
This might sound too rich for you, but if you don't go too heavy on the grease and you use a lovely vinegar, the salad is filling *and* refreshing! Just adjust both to your own taste.
I used some garden chives to add a little garlicy flavor to the salad - and color, too. (No, we didn't eat the edible floral heads whole. When it came time to serve this Killed Lettuce salad, I scattered a few of the petals around 😉
About Lauren, Contributor of this Kilt Lettuce Recipe
So happy to welcome the utterly delightful Lauren of Must Love Herbs to the podcast today. Lauren is going to speak to an idea that I don’t broach quite enough in this podcast, which is the fact that the US itself has many distinct subcultures: Appalachia (or - properly said, Appalachia) is one of those subcultures with its own geography, heritage, music, accents, and foodways.
Lauren is quickly amassing a huge following on Instagram that love her joyful, bright, and sundrenched photos and videos that share her ancestor’s knowledge of gardening and herbalism. She also shares the most amazing adorable cakes decorated with the most intricate, skillful, adorable mushrooms - breads covered with edible florala. Lauren’s a true ambassador of Appalachia, coming from generations of Appalacians that have lived on the land for over 200 years.
If you, like me, only carry a vague idea of what comprises the Appalachian subculture, Lauren will give us all a much deeper appreciation of this resilient, strong people through her charming stories and thoughtful discussion.
It’s a cliche, but it's an apt one when it comes to Lauren - she truly is a ray of sunshine and I’m so happy to introduce her to you right now!
