Christiana Campbell's Tavern Salmagundi

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Kimke

Salmagundi was the chef's salad of 18th century England. In present day England and in Colonial Williamsburg, the name has been revived. My mother enjoyed serving this as a main course for dinner. We always liked it!

We have made this salad (without the anchovies) every Thanksgiving dinner since our first visit to Colonial Williamsburg many years ago. Now it is part of the tradition, probably never to change.
