This was a wonderful light salad for lunch.
I am just loving the old recipes in the cookbook I purchased in W.VA a couple of weeks ago. This is such a fun recipe and a beautiful way to showcase some home-grown tomatoes. I did make up my own salad recipe that called for the celery and nuts and I placed it in the ingredient section. The recipe below in the directions comes straight from my recipe book and is also from the Rural New-Yorker. My Mom and I just loved this salad and had some Iced Tea and a hard-boiled egg with it. Hope you enjoy. Kim

How to Make Poinsettia Salad -- Dated August, 1926

Step-by-Step

  • 1Remove the skin from tomatoes. Divide each tomato into five sections, leaving them slightly connected at the bottom. The sections will then fall apart at the top, giving the appearance of a Poinsettia flower. Take equal parts of chopped celery and nuts and moisten with mayonnaise. Take a tablespoon of this mixture and place in the center of the "flower." Serve on lettuce leaves.
  • 2(To peal easily, drop cored tomatoes into boiling water for 30 seconds. The skins will slip right off. To quickly seed, give peeled tomatoes a squeeze, most of the seeds will squirt out.)
