Macedoine Salad

Mixed vegetables, well cooked, either canned or fresh, are called macedoine. If canned, drain, wash and arrange them neatly on lettuce leaves; pour over French dressing and serve. Macedoine may also be served in beet-cups, or in carefully cooked turnip-cups, or in the red skins of apples.

Nut Salad

Make a plain grape fruit salad. When you have it ready to serve, cover the top thickly with finely chopped almonds and pecans, mixed. Pour over French or Italian dressing, mix, and serve.

Olive Salad

2 hard-boiled eggs

1 head lettuce

1 small cucumber pickle

1 boiled beet

24 olives

1 teaspoonful onion juice

1 boiled potato

Stone and chop the olives; cut the beet and the potato into dice; chop the pickle. At serving time line the salad-bowl with lettuce leaves; put in the beet and potato, the pickle and olives, then a dusting of salt and pepper, and the hard-boiled eggs cut into slices. Pour over French dressing, mix carefully, and serve.

Green Pea Salad

Mix one pint of green peas with either mayonnaise or cream dressing. Heap them on lettuce leaves and send at once to the table. This salad is pretty served in scooped out tomatoes.

A Nice Supper Salad

1 head crisp lettuce

1/2 pint pecans and pine nuts, mixed 1/4 pound almonds

24 olives

2 good-sized tart apples

2 heads celery

1/2 teaspoonful paprika

1/2 teaspoonful salt

Blanch the almonds; dry and mix with the other nuts; chop rather fine. Cut the celery into inch lengths and shred it; mix it with the nuts. Pare, core and slice the apples; add them to the mixture. Sprinkle over the paprika and then the salt, and, if you like, a tablespoonful of onion juice. Pour over six tablespoonfuls of olive oil. Toss until each piece of the salad is covered with the oil, then put over the juice of a lemon. Mix again, and serve a tablespoonful in the centre of a crisp lettuce leaf.

Waldorf Salad

The original Waldorf salad is made by mixing thin slices of tart apples with white mayonnaise dressing. It is always served without lettuce leaves. There are many imitations, however. Some are composed of chopped celery and apple served on lettuce leaves; others are a mixture of apple and lettuce with chopped English walnuts.
