AUSTIN'S HAWAIIAN WEEKLY.
Information for Cootts. TRIPE SALAD. Dried tripe may be bought in the market. Cut in small strips. Add a little salt, and a dust of peper. Scatter minced chicory or waterjcress (the later is cheaper), make a layer of twelve ripe olives chopped fine, a teaspoon ful of onion juice, four teaspoonfuls of oil (more is better) and one of vinegar. Garnish with parsley and it's ready to serve. Tiny radishes, pretty as rosebuds, further garnished this dish. VEGETABLE SALAD. The specimen exhibited looked like high art in landscape gardening, being striped and figured like a bed of foliage plants. Various vegetables, beets, potatoes, turnips, carrots, formed this. The French dressing, with the addition of a teaspoonful of catsup, and the same of Worcestershire sauce. This salad was on a bed of dainty lettuce. Mrs. Rorer in her family uses seven cases of oil each year. I'OTATOE SALAD. The potatoes are cut up while warm, and finely minced onion was added. Simply add the French dressing. CA111SAGE SALAD. Shave a bowl of cabbage and stand in cold water one hour. Dry in a towel and mix thoroughly with this dressing: One pint of milk, well-beaten yolk of egg, a tablespoon ful of cornstarch, the same of vinegar, a bit of salt and a dust of pepper. A sliced hard boiled egg garnished effectively. OYSTER SALAD. Take 25 fat oysters. Drop into (a few at a time) a kettle of boiling water. Let them come to boil and put away where they will become ice cold. Garnish with green peppers cut in rings, a cup of chopped celery, a little horseradish and cut-up mangoes. The French dressing serves. Mutton treated the same way is delicious. SPINACH SALAD. Little cakes of cooked and pressed spinach rested on thin slice of tongue, it in turn rest ing on a slice of turnip. Celery was sprinkled round, and, of course, the dressing. MAYONNAISE SALAD. Put the uncooked yolk of three eggs into a clean, cold soup dish; beat them well with a silver or wooden fork about one minute; then add a half teaspoonful of salt and a dash of pepper, cayenne: work these well together, and then add, drop by drop, a half pint or more of olive oil. You must stir rapidly and steadily while adding the oil. Do not reverse the motion, or it may curdle. After adding one gill of oil, alternate occasionally with a few drops of lemon juice or vinegar. Just follow this exactly and you can have no trouble with this exceedingly difficult dressing. It was said that Delmonico used but one egg to a quart of oil. FRENCH DRESSING. Mrs. Rorer takes no trouble to conceal her admiration of this simple, elegant and nutritious dressing, and uses it where many think only a mayonnaise will do: Four table spoonfuls of oil mixed carefully with one of vinegar. (Vinegar is not a natural acid, but the product of bacteria. Lemon is a natural acid citric. It is sour. Vinegar has the aroma.) Therefore a dash of lemon was used. Flavor with onion, garlic, and a table spoonful of sherry. Salad should be sour. But, above all things, don't try to make it without oil. LOBSTER SALAD. Mr. Lobsrer, entire, having cooked three quarters of an hour, rested on a bed of let tuce. The stomach of this scavenger is in the head and is discarded. Don't break the shell; it is used for garnishing. Use the mayon naise dressing, being careful, if you would be a success, to have Tarragon vinegar. This was a truly tremendous dish.
