Mama Patsy’s Jolly Jiffy Salad

jollyjiffysalad001_small.jpg

This is my ideal summer salad. It’s refreshing, simple yet complex, balanced, and most importantly delicious. I’m not quite sure where it got its name but this is the recipe from my aunt and that’s what she calls it. She makes this for parties and it’s the one that’s always gone first.  It’s really quite hard to get too excited over a salad but this is good. I suppose that’s where the ‘jolly’ part of the name came from. The ‘jiffy’ part is a little bit of a misnomer because this isn’t so quick to make. Maybe it’s just that this salad makes you so happy that you eat it quickly — jolly jiffy. Even better!

Here’s how I made it (serves 20 ppl):
4 cucumbers julienne
2 jars pickles julienne
3 carrots julienne
3/4 lb cooked ham strips
1 can pineapple tidbits
2 fuji apples julienne
sharp cheddar cheese strips
1 cup mayo

If you’ve never julienned anything in your life and you make this salad you’ll be an expert by the end of it. Julienne all ingredients make sure they all look uniform :) Combine ingredients, dress with mayo, salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately. The sourness, sweetness and saltiness all play together very very nicely. The balance of flavors takes the edge off of the summer heat.  I made this for a church picnic and it had a good response. The next party you have try something different.

Eat Filipino Food!

  1. I remember having a similar salad at a gathering and thought the combination of ingredients were interesting… but I gave it a try and thought it worked surprisingly well! I think the one I had used pickle relish instead of julienned pickles and jarred salad dressing instead of mayo (for a little more sweetness).

  2. I helped julienned too! ;P
