I'll start off the collection of poor folk food right here. I sure hope you'll add as you go along.

Bob Jeffries, famous Soul Food chef and cookbook author, said that while soul food is southern cooking, not all southern cooking has soul. I'll be using a mixture light on mayo & heavy on yogurt. I'll be probably using apples in the chicken salad and I may end up splashing some worcestershire sauce after I taste it. That's an old trick I learned from the Hill Country.

Here are some recipes I'm going to be doing this next week from West Oakland Soul Food Cookbook:

MRS, GLORIA MOBLEY’S SPECIAL CHICKEN SALAD
Take a stewing hen (4 or more lbs. ) and simmer in
salted water until very tender. Cool. Remove meat
from bones, using only white meat for the salad.. Cut
the white meat into small chunks. Mix with about 2 C
head lettuce, chopped fine, 3 stalks celery, 1/2 onion
or one bunch green onions, 1/2 bell pepper, chopped,
2 dill pickles, chopped. Add mayonnaise to moisten.
You may add chopped walnuts or chopped apple (1/2 C)


MRS, JEAN WILLIAMS' TOSSED SALAD

Chop one head lettuce, 2 ripe tomatoes, one bunch
green onions, 3 sweet pickles or fresh cucumbers,
1/2 bell pepper. Toss with mayonnaise thinned with
a little wine vinegar. Garnish with olives.


MRS, MATTIE HARRIS' COLESLAW

Chop one head firm white cabbage very, very fine.
Add 1-1/2 C mayonnaise , mixed with 1/2 teaspoon
salt, 1 teaspoon celery seed, a little cider vinegar.
You may add 1/2 C crushed pineapple or 2 thinly sliced
bananas .


MRS. EATHA McTILER'S COLE SLAW

1 small head firm white cabbage, shredded very
fine
1 bunch green onions, chopped
2 T sweet pickle relish
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
Dressing: 1-1/2 C mayonnaise, 1/2 C sour cream, 1 T lemon juice
beaten smooth

Mix all together, garnish with sliced tomatoes.


MRS. BEATRICE HALL'S POTATO SALAD

Cook 4 lbs new potatoes in their jackets until tender.
Cool, peel, chop into small pieces. Mix with:

1 bunch green onions, chopt
4 stalks celery, chopt
2 hard boiled eggs, chopt
1 T butter
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 C mayonnaise, mixed together
1/2 bell pepper, chopped

Garnish with lettuce, olives and paprika.

I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.
