Add oil in slow streams, beating it constantly with beater. Use over various greens topped with red onion. Enjoy! (From Boston's English Tea Room on Newbery Street).

    Hi Aunty Carol,

    I know it has been a long time since you posted your request so I hope this finds you. I too have been searching for a recipe for the salad dressing that they used and 40 years later I am still looking.

    I was wondering if you tried the dressing posted below your request? I hesitate to try it as the celery seeds don't seem quite right. I seem to remember is having poppy seeds. I have tried a number of poppy seed dressings over the years but haven't found what I am looking for yet.

    Please let me know if you tried the dressing and what you thought.

    Thanks, Brenda

    I have found several variations of the dressing posted online. The one thing they all seem to have in common is the celery seeds (or celery salt). I see no reason why you couldn't use poppy seeds instead of celery seeds if that is what you remember/prefer. (Of course that will change the flavor of the dressing.)

    Here is yet another version:

    http://therecipereader.com/tea-room.htm

    "This is a Klock family favorite adapted by Nancy for our little red cookbook. It was enjoyed by her at the English Tea Room Restaurant when visiting Peter while he was in college in the sixties.

    TEA ROOM SALAD DRESSING

    10 Tablespoons sugar
    1 teaspoon dry mustard
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 medium onion, grated
    1 cup oil
    1/2 cup vinegar
    1 Tablespoon celery seed

    In a Waring blender (or Cuisinart food processor, now) combine the first five ingredients and blend well for 10 minute. Slowly add vinegar while continuing blending. Then add celery seeds.

    Let sit several hours, stored in covered jar.

    Best served on a rather plain green salad (e.g. mix of lettuce and raw spinach) or as a coleslaw dressing.

    Adapted from a salad served in the sixties in the English Tea Room, Boston.

    This recipe has been kitchen tested."

    Thank you Dee514.

    This is essentially the same recipe that I have been making for years but, as I mentioned with poppy seeds, that wasn't quite right. Looks like maybe I have been using the wrong seeds. Can't wait to try it. So glad I found this forum. Thanks again, Brenda

    PS: The dressing made with the poppy seeds is great on a fruit salad.

    Hi y'all.

    I am here with a rather unusual request. I was doing a Google search of the old English Tea Room in Boston when I stumbled on this website. Given the years referred to in the headline, it seemed obvious to ask if any of you folks got to know the woman who ran the English Tea Room in the early '60s. I know her husband and son were surnamed Lozano (or de Lozano) and that they had some sort of Spanish nobility links. I do not know what surname the lady who ran the Tearoom used, but I am pretty sure I recall that she was also of noble birth, though from eastern Germany rather than Spain. Lozano fils was a friend while in college. Last I knew he attended the New England Conservatory of Music as a piano student. Any info or suggestions would be gratefully received.
