original 1905 salad

We recently ate at the Columbia Restaurant in 
St. Augustine, FL and ordered the most delicious salad.
Here is our version . . .


Columbia Restaurant’s Original “1905” Salad
{slightly adapted}

What you need
4 cups iceberg or romaine lettuce,
broken into 1 ½" × 1 ½" pieces
1 ripe tomato, cut into pieces
½ cup baked ham, julienned 2" × ⅛" (5.5 oz)
½ cup Swiss cheese, julienned 2" × ⅛" (3 oz)
½ cup pimiento-stuffed green Spanish olives
¼ cup Romano or Parmesan cheese, grated



What to do
Combine lettuce, tomato, ham, Swiss cheese and olives in a large salad bowl. Before serving, add “1905” Dressing and toss well.  Sprinkle Romano or Parmesan cheese on top.  Serve immediately. Makes 2 full salads or 4 side salads.

“1905” Dressing Ingredients
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
juice of 1/2 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

Salad Dressing Preparation
Mix olive oil, garlic, and oregano in a bowl with a wire whisk. Stir in vinegar and lemon juice, gradually beating to form an emulsion, and then season with salt and pepper. For best results, prepare a few hours ahead of time.
