Salad Recipes

Here are some salad recipes to go with the salad dressings I mentioned a couple months ago.

Pare the tomatoes, cut in pieces larger than the ingredients in other salads; drain in a colander. Chop onethird as much celery as tomato used. Do not mix or add the dressing until ready to serve as it becomes watery by standing. Dressing. — Yolks of two hard boiled eggs rubbed fine, one tablespoonful of mustard, one tablespoonful of salt, yolks of two raw eggs beaten into the other, one tablespoonful of sugar. Add very fresh sweet oil poured in very slowly and beaten as long as the mixture continues to thicken. Thin it with the juice of one lemon and a ilittle vinegar. The dressing must be thicker than for other salads.—M. E. Brown Waldron.

Dissolve one-half box of gelatine in one can of tomatoes. Add one small onion, sliced. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until onion is tender. Remove from fire and strain into small cups or moulds. (Do not fill the cups.) When hard turn each on a lettuce leaf and serve with a Mayonnaise dressing.—Clara E. Bowes.

Three tablespoonfuls of vinegar, three tablespoonfuls of water, one teaspoonful of salt, one-half teaspoonful of black pepper, one half teaspoonful of mustard, pinch of cayenne pepper, one beaten egg. Stir all together and set over teakettle. Steam until it thickens. When cold, add your bowl of potatoes, and the la&t thing stir in one-half pint of whipped cream.—Mrs. F. Moore.

Boil one pound lean veal; when cold, chop fine. To this add one fresh cucumber sliced and salted, and a few sprigs of water or garden cress chopped. Dressing-—One tablespoonful of sugar, one tablespoonful dry mustard, one tablespoonful salt, two tablespoonfuls flour, one teacupful of vinegar, five eggs well beaten, two tablespoonfuls of melted butter or oil. Strain. Mix all in a bowl and place in a double boiler, stirring constantly to keep it from boiling. When it is the consistency of whipped cream, bottle in a fruit jar, and when used, dilute with cream.—Mrs. S. C. Williams.

Two heads of lettuce prepared as for lettuce salad, one cucumber sliced thin, one ripe tomato, mint or watercress. Put the prepared lettuce leaves on a flat salad dish, spread the slictd cucumber over the lettuce, and the sliced tomatoes on top of the cucumber, scatter leaves and small sprigs of mint or watercress over all. Serve in saucers, putting one or two tablespoonfuls of dressing over each saucerful. There is nothing quite so appetizing as the above on a hot summer day.—E. L. S.

One-fourth medium-sized cabbage, one bunch of small celery, two heads of lettuce, one bunch of small round radishes, onion if desired. Chop the cabbage, onions and all but two of the radishes, fine. Add celery cut across the stalks very thin; lay a number of lettuce leaves together, roll lightly, and slice thin. Mix altogether with a fork. Add dressing enough to moisten nicely. Put lettuce leaves around the edge of a flat salad dish, put on the salad, slice the radishes thin and scatter over the top, p it the tiny center of one of the bunches of lettuce with two pretty leaves of the celery in the center. Dressing.—One-half teaspoonful of mustard, one-half teaspoonful of salt, onefourth teaspoonful of pepper, one even tablespoonful of sugar, one heaping tablespoonful of flour. Add enough vinegar to make a smooth paste, with which beat two eggs thoroughly. Add piece of butter size of an egg and one cupful of vinegar. Put over the fire and cook slowly.
