Product Description

1905 Salad (see video below)

In the 1970s, this flavorful salad was the Columbia’s answer to the ubiquitous salad bar. Created by waiter Tony Noriega in the 1940s, it was adapted by the Columbia, eventually phasing out the use of black olives and celery. The Columbia kitchen designed a new dressing that features Worcestershire sauce, lemon, and Parmesan cheese. When the president of Lea and Perrins heard that the Columbia was his biggest customer, he investigated and ate a “1905” Salad. He soon discovered the salad’s delights for himself.

Salad Ingredients

  • 4 cups iceberg lettuce, broken into 1 1/2" × 1 1/2" pieces
  • 1 ripe tomato, cut into eighths
  • 1/2 cup baked ham, julienned 2" × ⅛" (may substitute turkey or shrimp)
  • 1/2 cup Swiss or Provolone cheese, julienne 2" × ⅛"
  • 1/2 cup pimiento-stuffed green Spanish olives
  • 2 cups “1905” Dressing (see recipe below)
  • 1/2 cup Romano cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce®
  • 1 lemon



Combine lettuce, tomato, ham, Swiss cheese, and olives in a large salad bowl. Before serving, add “1905” Dressing, Romano cheese, Worcestershire, and the juice of 1 lemon. Toss well and serve immediately. Makes 2 full salads or 4 side salads.


“1905” Dressing



  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin Spanish olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • ⅛ cup white wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Salad Dressing Preparation


Mix olive oil, garlic, and oregano in a bowl with a wire whisk. Stir in vinegar, gradually beating to form an emulsion, and then season with salt and pepper. For best results, prepare 1 to 2 days in advance and refrigerate.
