Wilted Curly Endive

No recipe image available.Unlike other wilted versions, this salad is not sweet. Vinegar and bacon give it old-fashioned savory goodness.

12 bacon strips, diced
3 medium bunches curly endive
4 quarts water
2 1/4 teaspoon salt - divided use
2 to 3 tables cider vinegar
3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Cooking Directions:

  1. Cook bacon until crisp; remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Reserve 3 tablespoons drippings.
