Wilted lettuce salad

Author Notes: This salad was always a sign that spring was well and truly arrived, as it made use of the first fruits of the garden. Seems like we'd have it almost every night when the garden would start providing lettuce, radishes and green onions -- the first tastes of spring.Kayb
