Columbia Restaurant's 1905 Salad

Although Columbia Restaurant was founded in Tampa's Ybor City in 1905, I first noticed it in Sarasota & have always wanted to eat there. With wanting to save money & rarely having a babysitter, we don't often get out these days so we decided to create their famous 1905 salad at home!

I'm not sure how it compared to the real deal since I haven't tried it, but I do know that it was absolutely delish! As we chopped & chatted, we listened to some Dean Martin, Harry Connick Jr. & sipped some champagne.

It was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday night!


  1. That looks really good! What's in it?

  2. Glad it was a nice date night "in" for you guys! What ingredients and dressing did you use?

  3. The recipe is linked in my post! Sorry, should have mentioned that!
