Palace Court Salad - Sheraton Hotel

Martha Price

By

When I was a child my grandpa took me to the famous Garden Court restaurant in the Sheraton-Palace Hotel in San Francisco, CA. He felt it was his duty to introduce his grandchildren to alternate areas of life,such as this nod to "fine dining". He always ordered this salad.
I was so intimadated to be in this "fancy" restaurant!

This recipe has been a staple on the Sheraton menu since they created it in the 1920's, along with their equally famous Green Goddess dressing.
This is their original recipe!

1//4 c
minced fresh parsley
2 Tbsp
minced fresh tarragon
3 Tbsp
tarragon vinegar
1/2 c
minced fresh chives
3 c
mayonnaise

Directions Step-By-Step

1
To make the seafood filling: mix just enough mayonnaise into the shredded crabmeat and celery to hold it all together. Too much mayonnaise will mask the delicate crab flavor.
2
Arrange shredded lettuce on six large salad plates. For each serving, place a tomto slice in the center of the lettuce and top with an artichoke bottom. On each artichoke bottom mound 1/6 of the crab mixture, spoonful by spoonful, until a tower of crab results. Scatter chopped egg around the artichoke bases.
3
Chill salads well before serving with Green Goddess dressing. Garnish with lemon wedges.

GREEN GODDESS DRESSING:
