Green Jacket Salad

Congratulations to Charl Schwartzel, the winner of the 75th Masters Tournament!  Even though he wasn’t my pick…love Phil Mickelson…at least it wasn’t Tiger!

In honor of the Masters we had a Green Jacket Salad with our steaks tonight.  When we lived in Augusta my friends always raved about this salad served at a restaurant by the same name, if I’m not mistaken.  By the time I moved to Augusta it had closed down, so I was never fortunate enough to dine there.  However, a friend and Augusta native, gave me this version of the recipe and it is DELICIOUS!

 

Look what Greg bought me at the Masters! I love it, but he won’t let me have it until my birthday in May.

  1. I am with you on Tiger but I did feel fondness for 26 year old Charl after he won. Let’s hope he remains humble (and keeps a bit of self control in tact) if he remains champion material. 😉 Salad looks delicious! I will try this. Salad is one of top two favorite foods….right up there with chocolate!! 🙂 Nice purse!

    • This recipe was given to me by a friend in Augusta. It’s the only version I’ve ever tried and it is delicious! If you have a different version please share the recipe!
