These look interesting! I'd never heard of wilted lettuce before! Will definitely have to try them! Thanks, Jean!

Hi Willow's Quiet Corner,

I believe the wilted lettuce is Dutch recipe. A friend of mine's family are of Dutch descent, and it is a popular dish in their home. Jean got the recipe because her son's had eaten it once and told her it was a great dish, so Jean got it from a friend of hers. It was a hit at her house, so she thought she would share it.
