I lost this when we moved. I haven't made this for a couple of years and have forgotten the recipe.
It is a tossed salad on a platter (or maybe just lettuce, with (I think crab-meat/?shrimp maybe even both. It has sliced or quarted hard-boiled eggs, and It is served with a dressing that is Thousand Island, Russian or something very similar(It also is part of the recipe.
Anyone know what I am talking about? I am having a few lady friends over for lunch next week and thought this would make a great summer salad with French Bread.

Checked my GH cookbook. I think this may be the recipe you are looking for. It has all the food items you mentioned.

Crab Louis
1 cup mayonnaise
3 TBS catchup
2 TBS chopped green onion
1 TBS Worcestershire
1 TBS red wine vinegar
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp white pepper
1 LB cooked crab
lettuce
3 hard boiled eggs-sliced
1 cucumber-sliced
1 tomato-sliced

For the dressing;
In medium bowl, combine first 8 ingredients; refrigerate for 30 minutes.

In center of platter heap crab meat. Encircle it with lettuce, egg, cucumber, and tomato slices. Pass the dressing separately.

Hope this is the one you are looking for! NancyLouise

Sanborn,

My sincere sympathy on the loss of your cookbook. I couldn't find my favorite bread cookbook after we moved, and you would have thought I'd lost a beloved family member, according to the howling and nail-biting going on! However, I found it in a box of gardening books (I don't know why, moving is traumatic).
Anyway, have you tried finding a used copy on Alibris (alibris.com)? I hope you find/replace your book.

Sanborn,
I was just on Alibris looking for a book, and checked out the GH cookbooks while I was on the site. There are a bunch! Since I don't know which of the GH books you want, I suggest that you get on the site and see if the "lost" book is available. The prices are reasonable, VERY reasonable! Good luck!

Thanks, I still also have boxes unpacked and will continue to look. But YES!!!! That is the recipe. Is the garden web just THE BEST. How did we ever live before without this site. I practically built my new house, picked out my kitchen, appliances, etc. and now decorating from it. Love you GARDEN WEB!!!! (maybe I need a life.)

Glad it was the recipe you were looking for Sanborn! I use my GH cookbook frequently. It is one of the best cookbooks I think. I received it as a Wedding gift when we were married in 1981. Good basic recipes that you can personalize to your own tastes. Hope your book is in one of those boxes! NancyLouise
