Preparation of Fresh Green Vegetables


Wash the vegetables thoroughly, leaving them in cold water to crisp, if wilted. Keep cool until ready to serve, then arrange daintily, and dress with salt, vinegar, and oil as desired, or prepare a dressing as follows:

Cooked Dressing

  • 1/2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • few grains pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 egg or yolks of 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vinegar


Mix the dry ingredients, add the egg slightly beaten and the butter and the milk. Cook over boiling water until the mixture thickens. Add the vinegar, stirring constantly. Strain and cool.
