I have this recipe from one of the owners when I lived in St. Louis back in the 70's. The only difference then was the jar of artichokes was NOT to be drained. Throw it in juice and all.
As a former regular at the original Rich and Charlie's, I'd like to suggest a correction. I agree that there's some sugar in the salad, but most importantly, the Parmesan cheese is not sprinkled over the salad, it is shaken right into the dressing. It makes a big difference.
The dressing needs just a bit of sugar to ease the bite of the vinegar. Otherwise, a wonderful salad all around that I've enjoyed there & at home many, many times. Very yummy - thanks for poosting!
I have never heard of this restaurant before, but the list of ingredients was right up my alley! I had eaten a lot of salads and sandwiches in Brazil with hearts of palm and was craving them recently... I simplified this recipe by using a basic bagged salad and then adding the rest of the ingredients... including the shave salami. That really made the salad IMO... I thought the salad dressing was lacking a little something however... so next time I think I may try adding a little red pepper flakes and/or sugar. Great salad that is easy to prepare and will definitely impress!!!
AWESOME! We live in Missouri and I was so excited to find this recipe. This is the best salad with any kind of pasta... Thanks so much!!!
This is an expensive salad to make but boy is it good. I went all out and added the hard salami. It is good!
I make this salad all of the time. It's an excellent salad with ingredients you usually have on hand.
For fast N easy this hit the spot in more ways than one! I didn't have the hearts of palm, or the iceberg lettuce but used a little extra romaine. Dressing was just right taste and amount. And it is Rich & Charlie's CopyKat! Thanks.
