Question 1: Perfection Salad A

Was invented by Mrs John E Cook, took third place in a 1905 recipe contest sponsored by Knox Gelatin. She won 100 dollars quite a sum in those days..The salad which consisted of shredded cabbage, celery, green pepper, pimiento and olive slices suspended in Knox Geletin considered very chic in it's day..but 21st century salad eaters have a different idea of "perfection".

Question 2: Caesar Salad B

The Caesar Salad was born at Caesar's Place (NOT Caesar's Palace) in Tijuana, Mexico, on July 4 1924. The story goes that owner Caesar Cardini ran short on ingredients and improvised with what was on hand; romaine leaves, parmesan cheese, olive oil, lemon juice, a raw egg, Worcestershire sauce and Croutons. The salad was a hit with the Hollywood set who frequently drove to Tijuana during the Prohibition era. Julia Child claimed to have eaten a Caesar salad at Cardini's restaurant when she was a child in the 1920's.

Question 3: Caprese Salad C

Insalata Caprese salad in the style of Capri is a salad from the Italian region of Campagnia made of sliced fresh buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes and basil, and drizzled with olive oil. The island of Capri is in Campagnia, and the story goes that it became popular after being served in Capri to the jet-setting King Farouk during the 1950's.

Question 4: Cobb Salad B

The Brown Derby restaurant was a favorite hangout of early Hollywood stars,such as Jimmy Durante and Katharine Hepburn. Late one night in the 1920's a hungry Bob Cobb created the salad from the kitchen's leftovers. It became a signature item. The orginal recipe included chopped avocado, celery, tomato, chives, watercress, hard-boiled eggs, chicken, bacon and Roquefort cheese.

Question 5: Cole Slaw C

Food historians generally agree the term "cole slaw" comes from the Dutch term "koolsia" meaning "cabbage salad".

Ok this is taking longer than I thought will finish tomorrow cause it's late

and it's still later so think I will only do a couple then finish tomorrow

And its later still so only going to do a couple then finish tomorrow

Question 6: Waldorf Salad B

Oscar Michel Tschirky (1866-1950) the long time maitre d' fo the Qldorf Astoria Hotel in NYC is credited for creating this fruit sald for the hotel's opening March 91896. His book called " the Cook Book" by "Oscar of the Waldorf" gave a recipe using only apples, celery and Mayonnaise. Later versions of the recipe include walnuts.

Question 7: Hidden Valley Ranch C

According to the makers of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing, the origin was the Hidden Velley Guest Ranch near Santa Barbara, CA. Owners Steve and Gayle Henson made it from a blend o dry herbs and spices, then mixed it with mayo and buttermilk. It became so popular that the Hensons began marketing packets of the dry mix. The Henson family sold the salad dressing business to the HVR Co. in 1972 So many food companies came up with copycat versions to the point that "ranch" is now a generic term.

finally the last two questions I know that you are waiting with batted breath

Question 8: Green Goddess B

In the 1920's, a play, "The Green Goddess", opened in San Francisco, starring well-known British actor George Arliss. To celebrate, a dinner party was held at the grand Palace Hotel. Chef Philip Poemer served artichoke bottoms filled with shrimp chicken or crab mixed with "Green Goddess" dressing.

Question 9: Golden glow salad C

The once-popular recipe calls for oragne and/or lemon-flavored gelatin, crushed pineapple and shredded carrots. I'm guessing the "golden" glow was more green in Utah where lime flavored gelatin is popular.

This was taken from the Deseret News by Valerie Phillips who was the food editor...ought to give credit where credit is do :)

so that is it for the quiz hopefully we all enjoyed it
