Salad Days

Experiencing a deluge of tomatoes? Need to find some variety in your lettuce salads? Ever wonder what exactly is a “suspicion of garlic” – is it more or less than a ¼ teaspoon, finely grated?

Enjoy reading (if not actually trying) some recipes of years past from the second edition (1911) of Two Hundred Recipes for Making Salads with Thirty Recipes for Dressings and Sauces by Olive M. Hulse, printed at The Hopewell Press on Jackson St., San Francisco.

Recently reprinted by several publishers in 2009 to 2012, none of the available editions have such lovely covers as the one in our Kemble Collections on Western Printing and Publishing.  

Mayonnaise dressing, anyone?
