The 1905 Salad isn’t quite as old as 1905 but the restaurant it hails from is. The Columbia Restaurant is Florida’s oldest restaurant – they opened in Tampa’s Ybor City in 1905, but the salad didn’t come along for a few more decades. Created by a waiter in the 1940s, the 1905 Salad was named one of America’s Top Ten Best Salads by USA Today, and one bite of that savory, salty, crispy salad and rich vinaigrette will convince you that it absolutely deserves that title.
This is no wimpy green salad. There are thick matchsticks of julienned ham and Swiss cheese, there are pimento-stuffed olives and artichoke hearts and giant wedges of juicy tomato, there’s even an extra helping of cheese in the form of finely grated Parmesan, but what ties it all together is the dressing.
