Salad recipes don't begin and end with a head of lettuce or a bag of mixed greens. While they have their time and place, it's easy to get bored with these delicate (in both flavor and texture) greens. Instead, make one of these exciting recipes starring everything from cruciferous vegetables like kale, broccoli, and brussels sprouts to juicy tomatoes, crisp carrots, and even celery.
Grandma's Wilted Lettuce Salad: Cut up one head of lettuce. Cut up 5 to 6 slices bacon into small pieces. Fry brown. Put bacon chips on lettuce. Pour off some of the bacon grease if desired.
