Upgraded Layered Salad
from: richard vandevelde <v...@math.luc.edu> 
subject: chili fest accompaniments -- what else to offer? 
we are going to have a large group (40-50) of folks over. we are planning 
to offer a several kinds of chili to them [this is to avoid the 
beans-versus-no-beans issue, as well as the ground-versus-non-ground meat 
debate.] the question has arisen as to what we should have for "side 
dishes" or basic "accompaniments" any suggestions for tasty side dishes 
are welcome. we are thinking of having rice and macaroni and corn 
bread. what what else??? [we have no problem with the potables!] 
 
 
 
 
  salad
1   10ounce bag fresh spinach, carefully washed and drained
1/4 lb.  mushrooms, sliced thin
1   20ounce package thick-cut bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 bunch  scallions, cut into 1/4-inch slices (include as much of the green
  as possible)
4 large  tomatoes, peeled, deglopped and chopped
1   10ounce package tiny frozen green peas, thawed but not cooked (they
  must
  be the tiny kind)
2 cup  chopped watercress
  dressing
1/3 cup  parsley sprigs, packed
1   garlic clove, peeled
2 Tbsp  white-wine vinegar
1 tsp  worcestershire sauce
1 cup  mayonnaise
1 cup  sour cream
1/2 tsp  freshly ground pepper
  topping
1 lb.  gruyère, grated
 
salad: in the aforementioned large bowl or punch bowl, layer the salad 
ingredients in the order listed, starting with the spinach and ending with 
the watercress. dressing: in a food processor or blender, mince the 
parsley and garlic with the vinegar and worcestershire sauce. add the 
mayonnaise and re-process until smooth. scrape this mixture into a small 
bowl and stir in the sour cream and pepper thoroughly. assembly and 
topping: "ice" the salad with the dressing. in other words, spread the 
dressing across the top of the salad but don't mix it in. it will mix 
itself in, you see. spread the grated gruyère evenly across the dressing. 
cover the bowl with foil and chill the salad for 24 hours. traditionally, 
this salad is not tossed before serving; you're supposed to plunge a spoon 
down to the bottom of the bowl and deftly spoon up one layer of each 
ingredient.
