Rich & Charlie's Salad (Copycat)

"This salad is a copycat of the salad served at Rich & Charlie's Restaurant in St. Louis. They serve it out of a barrel so the lettuce is a little wilted, but unique and tasty."

  1. Rich and Charlie's salad DOES NOT have black olives or mushrooms.
  2. Made this up as written to share with neighbors, as much as anything because my heart isn't really into canned artichoke! Still, I kept 3 servings & sent the rest next door, to raves & Oh, yeses aplenty! The neighbors & my other half really enjoyed it, & I gotta admit that it was OK! So being outnumbered & still wondering what all the fuss was about, you deserve all the stars! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
  3. Never had it with mushrooms at the resturaunt. To be true to the resturaunt recipe, it needs Hearts of Palm added. Otherwise, great copy cat recipe. I've enjoyed this many times there & at home...a very yummy combination of flavors.
  4. This was the salad I made for Thanksgiving. It got rave reviews. It was suggested that adding cubed salami or other Italian meat would make it a meal. Thanks Post Time for a great salad recipe. Bullwinkle.


I'm 58 and disabled. I'm not real sure how disabled, since I'm quite sure I'm not useless. I worked in insurance for over 20 years, 12 as the manager, and before that I was a sailor on a nuclear submarine. I had 4 kids, two were inherited when I got married, and two more that are way too much like me. One of my inherited kids has since passed away. I like to read, play golf when I can, and I love to fish. I am generally handy and firmly believe that if I can find a book to tell me how to do something, then I can do it. I have been married to the same woman for the last 30 years, and it looks like we're stuck with each other. I'm a happy person, grateful for what I have, but generally not requiring a lot. Watching my trees grow and my flowers bloom is what I call relaxation. The only thing that makes that experience more enjoyable is to have my dog Dixie near by. I like good cigars, Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 maduro as a matter of fact. I wear a hat like Indiana Jones wears. I like to cook for my wife, but she doesn't always like it. I'm very easy going, almost never pretentious, and I like everybody I meet. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="">
