Grandma's Wilted Lettuce Salad

The same sweet sour bacon dressing she uses for her German Potato Salad, but not as thick. A recipe we are SO happy we made her sit down and add to the family cookbook!!!

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.  To bacon grease, add 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water.  Bring to boil.  Boil to thick and pour over lettuce.  Salt and pepper.
