serves 4

6 slices bacon
4 cups shredded lettuce, such as romaine
2 cups purslane, rinsed and snipped into small pieces
6 small white mushrooms, thinly sliced
2 green onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon ketchup
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste

In a skillet, cook the bacon until crisp and brown. Drain on paper towels. When cool, crumble coarsely. Reserve. Put the lettuce, purslane, mushrooms, and onions in a large bowl. In a small bowl put the remaining ingredients, and whisk well to mix. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to mix. Serve the salad at once sprinkled with the bacon.
