Remember This Houston’s Salad?

Houstons Restaurant used to have this popular salad on their menu and they served it with honey mustard or the ever so healthy hot bacon dressing. When they stopped serving it, I started making it at home.  I top mine with balsamic vinaigrette and it’s just as good as I remembered.

Houston’s Salad

1 head iceberg lettuce, washed and  chopped
1/2 pound boars head deluxe ham, sliced thin and chopped in food processor
1/2 pound boars head honey maple turkey, sliced thin and chopped in food processor
8 ounces Cheddar cheese, cut up and chopped  in food  processor (freeze this for 1/2 hour before chopping in food processor so it does not stick together-it works great)
8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, cut up and chopped in food  processor (freeze for 1/2 hour)
2-3 tomatoes, chopped
Slivered almonds, toasted
Avocado, chopped (optional)
Sliced mushrooms (optional)
Cooked and crumbled bacon, (optional)
Boiled eggs, grated, (optional)
Croutons
Honey mustard, Ranch or Balsamic Vinaigrette

Freeze each cheese for 30 minutes and that way it does not stick together. Using the food processor, chop each meat and each cheese separately.   Place lettuce in individual bowls.  Put each ingredient all over top of salad, ending with cheese, croutons and then tomatoes and bacon if using.

  1. Houston’s is one of my most favorite restaurants! It’s been a long time since I’ve been! Their prime rib is the BEST & easily beats prime rib from anywhere else (even home made), hands down! Such an amazing restaurant, all the food they serve is delicious!

    • I agree with you. I love just about everything at Houston’s including the atmosphere. Haven’t tried the prime rib. Sure do love the spinach artichoke dip but it’s hard for me to order because after eating that, I’m not hungry anymore! If you haven’t tried their veggie burger, it’s amazing.
