This recipe was published in St. Louis Post Dispatch in 2009. It was originally a staple at the 'Top of the Tower' restaurant in North St. Louis County which operated from 1964 through to the mid 1980s. This salad was originally prepared table side, and was undoubtedly part of an elegant dining experience!
