Montreal once had a well-loved restaurant on Mountain Street, called The Continental. I don’t remember much about it other than their famed ‘layered’ salad (back in the day when salads were presentation pieces) with its specialty vegetable vinaigrette. The Montreal Gazette sent to interview the manager, who shared the recipe (actually she made me eat it, while she gazed on, always a comfortable experience. Then she made me guess the proportions which she said were top secret....not anymore!). It was called Salade Georges, I think, in honour of her then, little son. This is a unique and tantalizing, savory affair that still works.
