Wilted Greens Salad with Hot Bacon Vinaigrette

When I was a young girl, my Grandmother would take me out to the garden to pick Mustard Greens. We would pick greens in the fall and winter months when it was very chilly or cold outside. Today when I go out to my own garden I remember my Grandmother when she would make the Wilted Greens Salad. I remember washing the greens with her in the cold well water. I would pump the water and my Grandmother would wash the greens. This was one of my favorite salads when I was growing up and I love getting to make this salad for my own Granddaughters.
