Chef’s Layered Salad
“Layered salads seem to have
made their debut in the mid '70s with
the publication of a recipe for
"Overnight Layered Chicken Salad"
in Sunset Magazine.
Their popularity peaked in the '80s, with many
variations being printed on
packages by various American food
producers. Here is a composite
recipe representative of the typical
3 cups (750 ml) shredded romaine or iceberg lettuce
3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into match stick strips
1 cup (250 ml) small pasta shells, cooked according to
1 package (10 oz, 280 g) frozen green peas, thawed
1 medium red onion, peeled, sliced, and separated into rings
1 cups (250 ml) diced cooked ham
1 cup (250 ml) shredded Swiss or Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups (375 ml) mayonnaise
1/4 cup (60 ml) Dijon-style mustard
2 Tbs (30 ml) chopped fresh dill or chives
Layer the lettuce in
the bottom of a clear glass 3-quart (3 L) bowl,
followed by the carrots,
pasta, peas, onion, ham, and cheese. Mix
together the mayonnaise,
mustard, and fresh herbs. Spread the
mayonnaise mixture over the
salad and cover with plastic wrap.
Chill for 2 hours or overnight.
Toss to mix the ingredients thoroughly immediately before serving.
Serves 4 to 6.
