 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       bn           Celery
    1       bn           Parsley, small
      1/2   ea           Onion, medium
    1       c            Mayonnaise
    3       tb           Vinegar
    1       x            Salt
 
   Cut celery in short lengths and then mince all vegetables finely in
 food
   processor or chopping bowl.  Just before serving, dress with
 mayonnaise
   thinned with a little vinegar to taste, and salt to taste.  Any
 leftovers
   will get watery after standing awhile, but can be drained and combined
   with fresh dressing.
   
   Stan’s Grandmother Sofie came from a San Francisco German delicatessen
   family, and she always made this salad for Thanksgiving and sometimes
 at
   Christmas.  Simplicity itself, it makes a refreshing counterpoint to
 all
   of the rich dishes at a Holiday meal.  Of course Grandma Sofie always
   chopped the veggies painstakingly with her much-used chopping bowl and
   special knife, and scorned the food processor as one of those “modern
   things that mooshes everything all up”!  Of course there is no
 discernable
   difference in the salad made with the food processor, but we were all
   tactfully careful not to point that out....... <G>
   
   Excellent!
