While there is no information about the author, Frances Barber Harris, she has subtitled her book: "A collection of dainty, wholesome salad recipes that will appeal to the most fastidious."
The book is divided into the following sections:
Card Party Salads
"If the writer can impress upon the readers of this little salad book the importance of eating salads, the writing of it will not be in vain."While none of these recipes will be earth shattering, it is an interesting look into a different time period. There are a lot of salads that involve slicing a fruit in half, scooping out the seed and serving it with -- a spoon. One really can't differentiate much between the salads in each section of the book. There is no real key as to why one might be a Card Party salad as opposed to a Luncheon salad.
Wash and slice loquats and kumquats thin, mix with sliced boiled chestnuts and serve on lettuce with mayonnaise.
You guess. When does one serve Loquat Salad? According to Harris, at Luncheon.
