The Other Deli Salads Thu, 04/7/11 1:57 AM (permalink)
We've discussed cole slaw,potato salad,chicken & tuna salad recently. I've been wondering how many folks still eat or make the classic three/four bean type salads, Health Salad, and carrot salad they way they used to be made. One of the easiest way to get a bad look from my kids or anyone else for that matter is to bring up carrot salad. Shouldn't be any surprise as within the past 20 years it's moved from an intensively laborious made box grated salad to a tasteless facsimile of itself using julienned shredded carrots in a straw-like inedible consistancy with rock hard raisins by most foodservice preparers . With all of the food processors around nowadays, this salad has lapsed from the delicious treat it used to be for no reason. The bean salads used to be very popular too. You rarely see these anymore in buffets or delis. If you do, they usually turn out to be somebody's bad and sour representation using some kind of bottled Italian dressing instead of the classic sweet vinegarette. Then there is the almost forgotten Health Salad that used to be made with finely sliced, shaved, and grated ingredients. I hear whole foods and a few other places still make this, but not like the old delis did using the same vinegarette that the Health Salads of the past did. I can't say when was the last time I had or even seen this available in it's original form. So much of the classic deli fare is slipping into history and I'm wondering if there are any places that still make the classics as they should or if anyone still does. I'll occasionally make a three bean salad, but end up eating it myself.
