Another mid-century cookbook, this one the second volume of what it boasted was a cooking encyclopedia. It covers G (game) through S (salads).
And what nasty salads it did promote. In addition to the monstrosities shown below, there is a recipe for one made with baked beans and sauerkraut.
Personally, I have a five ingredient rule, as in salads should be limited to that many. Like this.
Green Salad with Apple, Walnuts, and Bleu Cheese
One red eating apple, cored and diced
¼ c of crumbled bleu cheese (approx)
¼ c of broken walnut meats (approx)
oil & vinegar dressing
Dice the apple and pour the dressing over it immediately to prevent browning. Fill a salad bowl with lettuce, toss it with the diced apple/dressing, and sprinkle the cheese and walnut pieces over the top.
If you have time, toast the walnut pieces before you add them to the salad. This is a favorite and I usually have the ingredients on hand.
