Default Bahamian Salad

When I first started going to the Bahamas, almost 30 years ago, I loved the Paradise Island Resort and Casino which was then owned by Merv Griffin (the nice little resort has since morphed into the monsterous Atlantis).

It was all-inclusive, but the three or four restaurants at the resort were top-shelf!

One of the things that my mother and I raved about was what they called the Bahamian salad.

It was a bed of Bibb lettuce, topped with avocado, hearts of palm, red onion and maybe artichokes. With a thin white dressing.

I like to substitute grape tomatoes for the artichokes, and use whatever greens and dressing I have available. But the constants are avocado, hearts of palm and red onion.

So delicious!

That salad is right up my alley....ummmmm! I've been to Atlantis for the day (too pricey to stay overnight ). It's truly my kind of paradise--the gambling, the food, the underwater displays--it's just beautiful.

I have stayed at the same resort and absolutely loved the food. This is also my kind of salad.

That looks so good, I could eat it without any dressing.

I'd try seasoned rice vinegar. Light and not overpowering.

What is the white dressing?

I make one with mayo, a little sugar and sometimes a little spicy something.

Sass, I don't know what it was, since it was served by the restaurant.

I think it may have been similar to yours, but thinned with a bit of rice vinegar, perhaps. Maybe some sour cream in there, as well as the mayo.

Thanks.
I found one with lime juice/zest-mayo, canola oil/s&p.

Better photos of the salad on another night - without and with dressing.

Every time I think I have a favorite salad, I have one of these and it becomes my favorite.
