Imported or domestic endive, chicory, escarole and Romaine or lettuce
must be washed, made crisp in cold water, and dried in a bag on the ice.
Serve them with French dressing.
Imported endive may, however, be served with mayonnaise, if desired.
The French style of making lettuce salad is as follows: After dressing
the salad, mix it in one tablespoon of oil, then take only two
tablespoons of white wine vinegar, mixed with a very little pepper and
salt, and just turn the lettuce over and over in this mixture.
Lettuce, dandelion, chicory, a little chopped beet, chopped celery, a
bit of tomato are mixed and covered with French dressing. The dressing
is usually flavored both with onion and garlic.
Boil the asparagus in salted water, being very careful not to break the
caps; drain, and pour over it when cold a mayonnaise dressing, with some
chopped parsley. Serve each person with three or four stems on a plate,
with a little mayonnaise dressing. Do not use a fork; take the stems in
the fingers and dip in the dressing.
Boil beets when tender, skin quickly white hot and slice them into a
bowl. Sprinkle salt, pepper, a tablespoon of brown sugar, some caraway
seeds, one medium-sized onion in slices and pour over all one-half cup
of vinegar which has been boiled; with a fork mix the hot vinegar
through the other ingredients.
BEET AND CAULIFLOWER SALAD
Take some thin slices of cooked beets, some cold cooked potatoes, some
cold cooked cauliflower, and a little chopped parsley. Pour over the
following dressing and add salt and pepper to taste:

lengths. Cover with boiling water, add one level tablespoon of wilt and
cook until tender, but not soft. Drain and save one cup of the liquor.

arrange over the top alternate slices of hard-boiled eggs and boiled
beets. Sprinkle with finely chopped onion, cover with French dressing,
toss and serve.
BOILED CELERY ROOT SALAD

remove from the water and set away until cool. Cut in slices about an
eighth of an inch thick; sprinkle each slice with fine salt, sugar and
white pepper; pour enough white wine vinegar over the salad to cover. A
few large raisins boiled will add to the appearance of this salad. Serve
cold in a salad bowl, lined with fresh lettuce leaves.
CELERY ROOT BASKETS
Buy large celery roots, parboil them and cut in shape of baskets and
scallop the edge; boil beets until soft and cut them in small balls

over the squash and serve.

yolks and whites of hard-boiled eggs, being careful to have the whites
and yolks separate. A few olives and capers will add to the decoration.

a tablespoon of sugar (either white or brown), adding a pinch of salt if
necessary. Pour enough white wine vinegar over all to just cover. Do not
make more at a time than you can use up in a week, as it will not keep
