This is an old fashioned salad that I found years ago and have been serving with cajun food. It should be made at least 3-4 hours in advance so the flavors can all meld together. The lettuce stays crisp and the dressing and tomatoes create a nice sauce that is good sopped up with french bread.
Mom gave me her copy of Aunt Sherry's Strawberry cake recipe many years ago. Both Mom and Aunt Sherry are gone now, but I remember both of them and my wonderful family when I make this cake. It is a little messy as the cake is very moist and the frosting can be a little runny. The cream cheese is my addition.
