Gergie's Salad
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 5 - 15 minutes
  • Servings: 6
  • Preparation Time: 30 minutes
  • 6 - 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 head lettuce
  • 4 green onions
  • 1/2 cup Chow Mein noodles
  • 3 oz toasted almonds
  • 4 tsp sesame seeds
  • Dressing:
  • 5 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Accent seasoning (can get it at Walmart, or can substitute 1 tsp more salt)
  • 1/4 Tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup salad oil (olive)
  • 6 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 Tsp salt
DIRECTIONS
  1. Cook bacon and crumble or chop. To cook, place 2 paper towels on a microwave safe plate. Layer bacon, then 3 more paper towels. Cook 4 - 6 minutes on high. Or cook bacon on the stove top, which takes a little longer.
  2. Shred lettuce and add chopped green onions in a large bowl.
  3. Mix bacon, noodles, almonds and sesame seeds together. Put aside.
  4. Mix together dressing ingredients.
  5. Toss lettuce mixture, bacon mixture and dressing together. Dressing quickly soaks lettuce, so salad is best eaten immediately.
RECIPE BACKSTORY
Thanks to Pam Pelley, a MOPS friend of Kathy Brooks, who 25 years ago gave a recipe from her family to Kathy's new little family, which then became a favorite of the Brooks family at large. Who knows where the recipe will travel next?
