our garden lettuce is coming in and so delicious and abundant. in trying to use it up, i'd been trying to think beyond the regular garden salad and remembered meme gamby's creamed lettuce. she made it often for thanksgiving and christmas and always used this hand beater.
it is one of my precious belongings, simply because it was hers. it always conjures up a picture of her making her sour cream dressing and having my dad taste it to make sure it was right.
i made some this weekend...a simple recipe and just as good as i remembered.
3 T. vinegar
3 T. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sour cream
beat with love in an old glass hand mixer and serve over lettuce.
