What Ever happened To Thousand Island Salad Dressing and other Great tasting ones such as French and Catalina ? Thay have been replaced by Mediocore Flavor Dresings such as Balsalmic Vinegar, Honey Mustard and Ranch. I don’t think that that the public really wants it that way but thats the stuff all the resturants are pushing and serving. I recently orderd a nice chefs salad and the dreesing that the gave me was Dejonaise’
Even when I go to a Italian Resturant & order an Antipasto Salad..its not the same that made them famous..Once I ordered an Anti Pasto Salad & when it was seved to my table it had no lettuce..just meats. I remember when you oreded an Antipasto salad it contained on a bed of Lettuce..Beets ,Hard Boiled Egg, Marinated Artichock ,large Green Olive ,Large Black Olive . Slice of Roasted Red Pepper, slice of Oinion,some Egplant appetizer(caponata) Anchovies,Celery Stalk.Capicola & Prosciutto Ham Genoa Salami & Provolone…it was truley a feast.
Today they give you practicly nothing.. chopped up beets a smidging of salami its a shame. Mostly 99% of the above mentioneds stuff are missing …its not what made it famous. Even Panera Bread is pushing a clean menu ..yes a clean menu of flavorles dressings ..I yearn for the way it used to be..this is progess ? Its the dumbing down of American Tastes.
