The Famous Layah's Salad

After many requests for this, here it is:
Layah's Salad
Note: All amounts here are very loose and can be adjusted at will according to personal taste. The dressing is also really good for cold cut and similar salads.


  • Lettuce
  • Scallions
  • Croutons (preferably onion-garlic; we like the teeny tiny ones)
  • Craisins

: [should be a thin-looking, lightish yellow at the end]

  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 clove of garlic OR some garlic powder
  • dash of lemon juice
  • a bit of olive oil to make it liquidy, though it's not really liquidy. It just thins it out a bit.
We use this dressing for another salad, though we keep it a drop thicker for this one:
Salami/Grilled Chicken Salad
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Mandarin Oranges
  • Chunks of either Salami or Grilled Chicken or both
  • I feel like I'm forgetting something.
Enjoy! Have a wonderful Shabbos!


  1. I feel like I'm forgetting something.

    Uhhhhhhhh, yeah. You forgot that you're giving the directions for making a SALAD!!

  2. yum - that's an easy one that keeps overnight it sounds like. thanks for the tip. i can throw this together now in time.

  3. G - LOL

    The Apple - :)

    EK - It doesn't keep overnight; it gets soggyish. But it does take just seconds to throw together. :)

  4. yum. a reincarnation of that salad (that we were served numerous times at various hosts over the chagim) uses bok-choy instead of plain lettuce.

  5. the fun thing about salads is you can toss in whatever you've got (within reason and it will still be good). Chinese noodles? Avacado? Hearts of palm? Apple slices? Sure, toss it in! yummy recipes, thanks.

  6. That sounds awesome.
    The next one I vote for posting is the sushi salad. My avocados are starting to turn! :)
