“Here is a recipe that I have sharedwith others many times, and have made many times. It is a favoriteof my husband, and it goes over well at get-togethers, too. Theneat part about this recipe is that it is a lettuce salad recipethat you must make at least 8 hours ahead of time. And it trulydoes keep very well. I have had last in the refrigerator fora week at a time, and the lettuce stays crisp—but it is sogood that it usually doesn’t last that long.” – Submittedby Jacqueline Driggers
