  • Delmonico Salad Dressing:
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Creole mustard
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 teaspoon steak sauce (recommended: A-1)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice concentrate or fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Directions
  • Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli and blanch until tender, 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place in an ice bath. Drain and pat dry.

  • Return the water to a boil, add the carrots, and blanch until tender, 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place in an ice bath. Drain and pat dry.

  • Place 1 large lettuce leaf on each of 4 salad plates and arrange 1/4 cup of the chopped lettuce in the center of the lettuce leaf. Chop 1/4 of the broccoli and arrange equal amounts inside each lettuce leaf. Arrange the remaining broccoli flowerets and the carrots in each of the lettuce leaves. Cut each beet slice into 4 sticks and arrange inside the lettuce leaves, alternating with the tomato wedges. Drizzle each salad with 2 tablespoons of the dressing and serve immediately.

Delmonico Salad Dressing:
  • Combine all of the ingredients except the vinegar in a medium bowl and whisk well to blend. Whisking, slowly add the vinegar until emulsified.

  • Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to use. (The dressing will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 week.)
