Many different vegetables can be used for salad and served on beds of lettuce leaves
Tomatoes may be skinned and served whole with mayonnaise dressing
each tomato standing upon lettuce leaves.
Or they may be cut in half length-wise or sliced, and werved either with mayonnaise
or French dressing
Cucumbers may be peeled and either sliced or cut in dice; they may be served
alone upon lettuce with French dressing or mixed with slices of tomato.
Asparagus Stalks may be served with lettuce alone or may be thrust through rings of
red pepper, 3 or 4 stalks to one ring of pepper. Dressing for the asparagus may be

String Beans, cooked and cold should be marinated before using.
When they have been piled in a salad dish they may be garnished around the base with
thin slices of radish and served with French dressing.
Celery, cut into strips about 1 inch long, may be served alone on lettuce or used in
combinations with other vegetables.
Mayonnaise dressing may be used for moistening the celery, and the salad may be garnished
