  • 4 Tomatoes
  • 2 Green Peppers
  • A Large Onion
  • A Plain French Dressing


Slice the tomatoes, onions and Green Peppers nicely and thin; arrange on a dish, placing a layer of Tomatoes, an alternate layer of Onion and Green Pepper, and Tomatoes mixed. Dress either before bringing to the table, or at the table, with French Dressing. This is a great family Salad among the Creoles, and a very healthy one. The Creoles follow the old adage, that the taste of the Onion must only lurk within the bowl when using it for Salad. More renders the Salad disagreeable and coarse.
