1905 Salad

I love salads and next to a Caprese Salad, this is my top favorite. 1905 Salad is a Columbian Restaurant favorite. This is my families version of their salad. My Aunt Sue taught me how to make this when I was around 12 or 13 and I’ve been making it ever since. The original version has ham, olives and uses swiss cheese. I don’t put the ham or swiss cheese in mine, but you could add it to yours. If you can’t find fontinella cheese, swiss will be a fine substitute. Fontinella cheese is what I think makes this salad. You can find it around the gourmet cheese section of your local grocery, it’s shaped like in a wedge and Stella is usually the brand.

The salad goes great with any Italian dish or makes a great lunch. I could eat this anytime!

1905 Salad

  • 1-2 heads of iceburg lettuce, chopped (I usually use 1  1/2 head of lettuce. All depends on their size)
  • 1 large tomato or 2 medium size tomatoes, large dices
  • 8 oz Fontinella cheese, grated on large grater
  • 1 cup Italian Salad dressing ( I use Wish Bone) You can add more than a cup, if needed
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tbs worchestire sauce
  1. In a large bowl, add lettuce, tomatoes and cheese.
  2. Pour salad dressing over the top and squeeze half the lemon and add the worchestire sauce. With salad tongs, mix well. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
