A delicious veggie salad was served at the A. A. Songy Teacher Appreciation luncheon at the school in Luling by Amy Brezinsky, secretary, and Leslie Cambre, treasurer, of the Songy PTA.

Here how’s to make it yourself at home, complete with dressing and garnish of Nasturtium flowers.

Salad

- 1 bunch broccoli

- 1 head cauliflower

- 2 tender green onion bunches

- 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped

- 1 1/2 cup olive salad mix

- 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Sauce

1 cup Hellman's Mayonnaise

1/2 cup Wishbone Italian Dressing. Garnish with Nasturtium flowers

Method

1. Chop broccoli and cauliflower in small pieces

2. Dunk pieces into boiling water for about 1/2 minute to gain pretty color

3. Cool quickly with ice water

4. Drain

5. Boil eggs by placing them in a pot of water; bringing water to a boil,

covering, turning off heat and letting sit for 20 minutes.

6. Place olive salad in a food processor and chop more finely.

7. Finely slice green onions

9. Grate Parmesan cheese ( I do mine in a blender)

10. Peel and chop boiled eggs

11. Combine above ingredients in a salad bowl.

12. Combine Mayonnaise and Italian Dressing and toss with salad

13. Refrigerate and let sit about 8 hours.

14. Serve in salad bowl and place Nasturtium flowers on top

Note: the flowers have different tastes according to the colors.
