"Retro" Salads or "Just Plain Weird"?
Wed, 03/10/04 11:12 AM
These salad recipes come from the Toll House, where chocolate chip cookies were invented, and date from at least 1948. I thought they were kind of bizarre. I usually find stuff like this in vintage cookbooks. Anybody else have the same experience and want to share some recipes? Thanks.
"CARROT" SALAD (or "Let's mess with the Easter bunny's mind.")
Season cottage or cream cheese with salt and pepper, and soften with a little cream. Shape into small "carrots". Roll in grated raw carrot and insert a carrot leaf or two in large end. Serve on lettuce with French or Mayonnaise dressing. Allow 2 "carrots" for each serving.
GINGER AND PEAR SALAD
Cut peeled pears lengthwise in thin slices. Arrange in circles on lettuce be, so that slices form petals of a flower. Put a little chopped ginger in center of each. Use strips of green pepper for stems. Serve mayonnaise seperately. Allow 1 pear for each serving.
