Make a nest of lettuce leaves on a salad dish, arrange on it several pieces of orange, first cut into slices and then into quarters, and a few halves of English walnuts. Place on each a thin layer of mayonnaise dressing and serve. Mrs. Mary George.
Chop lettuce and the whites of two hard-boiled eggs separately, not too fine. Toss lightly together, sprinkle the top thickly with English walnuts an the yolks of the eggs chopped coarsely. Pour over this any good salad dressing and serve on crisp lettuces. Yacht-Club dressing is very satisfactory. Mrs. Nellie Burwell.

One small, firm head of white cabbage, shredded very fine; four medium-sized tart apples cut in dice-shaped pieces; six cold, firm potatoes cut the same; one-half cupful of English walnuts cut in small pieces; one teaspoonful of finely-chopped white onion. If two stalks of celery cannot be procured, sprinkle freely with celery salt and one pinch of cayenne pepper. Toss well together with two silver or wooden forks (steel will cause the apple to turn dark) and pour over this a generous quantity of mayonnaise dressing. Place the salad on ice about one hour before using. Serve on lettuce leaves. Auditorium Annex, Chicago.
A very simple and old-fashioned way of making cold slaw is to cut the cabbage right across, as thin as possible. Let it stand in cold water five minutes. Drain and crisp it by dipping it into the water three times, then picking it over and drying it by laying it in a thin towel in the icebox. Then pour over a cold-slaw dressing to wet it well, and serve.
