Wilted Lettuce in Vinegar Dressing

How to make Sweet and Sour Wilted Lettuce: Inspired by Edna Lewis.

Wine Pairing​

This classic wilted lettuce summer salad recipe is served with a tangy hot bacon dressing. A perfect side dish idea to a great wine pairing dinner.

You can add chopped shallots to add additional tangy but crisp flavor. Our suggestion is to use white wine vinegar. But, you may use apple cider vinegar instead. Adding some lemon juice or grapefruit juice will add a cool citrusy flavor. A teaspoon of chili flakes will also add a great deal to the wilted lettuce salad.

An easy southern recipe and the best summer salad that goes so well with the best white wines. Check out our top wine suggestions:

  • Sauvignon Blanc
  • Pinot Blanc
  • Vermentino
  • Garganega
