When I was in Tampa last month, I had dinner one night at the Columbia Restaurant. Like Bern’s Steak House, it is another landmark restaurant of Tampa. This place oozes with old Spanish charm, and their sangrias are particularly addictive. I especially liked the 1905 salad. This salad has been on the menue since the 1940’s, and it’s no wonder it’s enjoyed such staying power. It’s a great starter dish, or if you up the amount of ham and cheese, it would make a great main dish salad.

- Toss salad ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk together the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Add dressing, Parmesan cheese, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice to the salad and toss to combine. Divide salad into individual bowls, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
