Sallad Magundy
The recipe for this very old English salad with the peculiar name of "salmagundi", "sallad magundy", "solomon grundy", or other variations, is believed to have been first published In "Royal Cookery or The Complete Court Book" (1710), written by Patrick Lambe, who cooked for several English monarchs. The word derives from the old French for a mixture, "salmigondis". It is a festive salad with colorful ingredients artfully arranged on a bed of greens. Serve it for a company weekend luncheon.

  • 8 pitted black olives

  • How To Cook:
    1. Combine oil, vinegar, sugar, mustard, paprika, horseradish, salt, and pepper in a small bowl or jar. Refrigerate.

    2. When ready to serve, arrange greens and watercress to form a mound or pyramid in center of a salad bowl.
