Russell House Salad


Have you ever gone to a restaurant and had a dish you wished you could make at home?  This salad is one of those dishes.  It was the start to a wonderful dinner at Russell House Tavern in Cambridge.  So simple, yet so delicious.  I’ll never know how close this recipe is to the actual dish, but it tastes like the real thing.  The best part is that now I can have it all the time.
