Cook's Notes

Spring greens don't last long, so buy only what you plan to use within a few days. Store washed greens in a resealable plastic bag lined with dry paper towels in the refrigerator up to 1 day.

    I grew up eating this dish often, with a few subtle differences: Careful not to cook the bacon til it's crispy -- chewy is what we were looking for. We sauteed the frisee or chicory in the bacon fat to wilt it. We called it wilted salad. And finally, only used malt vinegar for the dressing. My mother was first generation American, her mother was eastern european and lived in Paris before coming to the US.

      We made it the same way except we used green dandelions. Delicious.
