Another favorite from the Highland Park Cafeteria. This makes a nice composed salad for a ladies’ bridge club lunch, I suppose, but the horseradish packs a wallop that interests more manly types. Serves 4.
1 lb spinach, very thoroughly washed and completely dry
2 T mayonnaise (approximately)
1 t lemon juice
4 T grated horseradish
2 hard boiled eggs
Lettuce leaves for serving
Method: Chop the spinach extremely fine. Add lemon juice then just enough mayonnaise to allow the spinach to be molded into a genteel mound for presentation (see picture); divide into 4 serving portions and place a spinach mound on top of a lettuce leaf, using a large spoon for shaping. Duplicate the shape of the spinach with a 1 T mound of horseradish on the side. Grate or finely chop hard boiled eggs and distribute evenly on top of the salads.
