Potato Salad

Cut cold boiled potatoes into small cubes; add peas in the proportion of one cupful of peas to three potatoes; add salad dressing and stand two hours before serving. Cold beans, beets, sliced cucumber, or chopped green peppers can be used to combine with potatoes. Some add merely a sliced onion. In this last case, chopped parsley or even chopped lettuce will give a little more color as well as flavor to the salad. Garnish with shrimps or nasturtium blossoms.

Persian Salad

Take two cold boiled potatoes, six cold boiled eggs, one head of lettuce. Cut the potatoes in small dice, slice the eggs, and shred part of the lettuce. Arrange all in a salad bowl and pour over a mayonnaise dressing. This should be served as soon as mixed, as the lettuce wilts very quickly.

Scallop Salad

Soak the scallops in salted water one hour, drain, cover with boiling water, and cook slowly half an hour. When cold, cut in slices or pick apart, and mix with half the quantity of celery cut into bits. If the celery season is past, shredded lettuce may be used. Serve on lettuce with mayonnaise or boiled dressing, and garnish with slices of lemon.

Small-Fruit Salad (For Dessert)

Sprinkle with sugar and mix (after stemming) strawberries, raspberries, currants, or any small fruit. After the sugar is dissolved, add six table-spoonfuls of wine or brandy, or three table-spoonfuls of any liquor. If desired a little powdered cinnamon improves the flavor.
