Used different ingredients. Delicious!! Delicious!! Delicious!! I omitted the spring onions (just don't like them) and added some black olives. Try this!! - 24 Jul 2008


Used different ingredients. I prefer a mixture of cos and little gem lettuce with a dressing consisting of red wine vinegar, olive oil (which I drizzle in slowly to emulsify) dijon mustard, chopped fresh chives and crumbled blue cheese. Any way you decide to make this salad with whatever dressing, it will always be a hit. Thanks so much Mr. Bill! - 24 Jul 2008


Funny you mention this is an American salad, as the first time I had it was in France over 30 years ago. - 22 Aug 2016
