Classic Iceburg Wedge
Agree with the exception of...
A large banquet hall I worked & I used that salad for a served party of 700. Shredded purple cabbage, shredded carrot, cucmber & tomato make a nice contrast. A hot bacon dressing over it served held up much nicer. It was faster to put together too.

Glad to be of help. It is a fun way to serve salad and is often the talk of the table.

Make sure you use enough cheese so that there aren't to many holes. And when you fold it over the bowl, it will develop ruffles. The main part is to make it conform to the shape of the bottom of the bowl and part way up the sides.

Hard boiled eggs...and either Grilled Chicken or "Boiled"Shrimp with either the 'Mother Sauce of Mississippi' or this Olive oil, garlic, caper, anchovy concoction that I brew up as a dressing.

Fun!
What is the 'Mother Sauce of Mississippi'?

Thank G-d there was no lettuce when I was a child. My favorite salad is probably tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, bell peppers (not green), green onion, a little bit of dill and a little bit of shredded cabbage, sour cream or mayo and lemon juice. It works well with Italian dressing too, or simply oil and vinegar and seasoning of course. And if not that simple cucumber – tomato salad is good enough for me.

That's the only way I make blue cheese dressing. By the time the blue cheese has dissolved, my vinaigrette is nice and creamy

But, I don't like it too often.

I started making it without adding sour cream or mayo, which is how I had learned in the restaurant, I like the non-creamy better.

recipe, salad

What’s your favourite salad? I remember that, when I was a child some 40 years ago, you could basically have two kinds of salad: some lettuce + oil, vinegar, salt and pepper or some lettuce and tomatoes + oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. And that’s probably the main reason why we children generally loathed salads… :lol: But things changed! Today you can have an almost endless choice of salads, thank God, and this is one of my favourite: – [I]rucola, radicchio, Tropea red onion, cherry tomato, capers, black olives[/I] with – [I]extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, pepper[/I]. Now, I wonder, what are you favourite salads? Just oil&vinegar or some rich mayonnaise? Only vegs or meat and fish too? Ok, now that the pills defeated my backache, I’m running to my greengrocer! :pig: 3 stars 1 reviews
