My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Combination Salad

Who would have thought! I have nothing left in my kitchen to can, at the moment. I'm getting old or this has been a long canning season. I'm ready for a break.

If you are a older Southern girl you will remember this wonderful salad. I can remember my grandmother making it.

Combination Salad
serves 8-10
print recipe

1 head of cabbage
1 green pepper
2 ribs celery
4 green onions, sliced
1 cucumber, seeded and diced
2 tomatoes, diced (I like to peel and seed mine, but not necessary.)
2 eggs, hard boiled
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Finely chop cabbage, green pepper, and celery. Place in a large bowl; add onions, cucumber, tomatoes, and chopped egg whites. Mash egg yolks in a small bowl; add remaining ingredients. Stir to dissolve sugar and pour over vegetables. Serve chilled.
