Dear Phaedrus. 

Talking with friends about old times , we all seem to remember going to 
Coney Island to Nathen's. There we would get chow-mein on a bun . boy were 
they good, could you get the receipe for that. Would sure love to try and make it. 

thank you 


Hi Virginia,

The chow mein sandwich actually originated in Fall River, MA before Nathan's put it on their menu.

There's no recipe available for Nathan's, but try these:

Flavor and Fortune
"If you want to try the Chow Mein Sandwich (a la Fall River), purchase one package (eight ounces) of 'Original Hoo Mee Chow Mein Mix.' Then prepare your chow mein according to directions. Place a hearty scoop of the chow mein mixture between a hamburger bun or between slices of white bread (square loaf required, to be authentic). When using white bread, also prepare the Chow Mein (brown gravy) Mix and ladle the resulting gravy over the sandwich as one would for a hot turkey sandwich."

I need to know what goes into a Greek Salad (all the fixings) and the ingredients 
of a good authentic Greek Salad Dressing.  Is there cinnamon in it?  Thanks,

No, no cinnamon, and no lettuce in the salad.


I stand corrected by Jim.

Hi Phad, Jim in Oklahoma here. Concerning Greek Salads, I beg to differ with you, 
my family moved here from Greece in 1914.  There are 2 main types of Greek salads;, 
the Horiataki Salata (Village Style Salad) which doesn't use lettuce, and a Leaf 
Style, that DOES use lettuce, but ONLY (and usually a combination of); Leaf (Red or Green), 
Romaine, Bib, Butter, Endives, and Spinach Leaves. The leaf salad will be garnished 
with Feta Cheese, Kalamata Olives, Pepperonici Salad Peppers, Capers, etc. 
In Greece, like most countries, the food is regional, and in some areas of Greece, 
they DO add a light sprinkeling, for just a hint of Cinnamon, or even Cayenne Pepper 
to the top of the salad.
 OHH,, Iceberg Lettuce is never used on any Greek salad,, nor most of the rest of the world,, 
 and usually isn't even available outside the U.S. or Canada, except at some military bases. 
For the leaf style Greek Salad
Serves 6-8
 For the Dressing
1/3 cup Red Wine Vinegar
3/4 cup Olive Oil
1/3 cup Lemon juice
1 tsp. dried crumbled Oregano
4 cloves Garlic, minced
Sea Salt to taste
fresh ground Coarse Black Pepper to taste

Whisk all the ingredients together, taste, and refrigerate overnight.
For the Greens
4 cups Romaine Lettuce, torn
4 cups Red leaf Lettuce, torn
4 cups Green Leaf Lettuce, torn
1 cup Endives, torn
1/2 cup Salad Peppers (Pepperonici)
1/2 cup fresh Mint OR Spinach leaves, torn
1/2 cup fresh Parsley
1 medium Cucumber, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup Capers, drained
1 small Red Onion, sliced
1 cup diced green Onions (optional)
1 cup Kalamata Greek olives
2 large Tomatoes - chopped
1 cup Feta cheese - crumbled
Fresh grated Black Pepper
Mix all the greens, tomatoes, cucumber, onions, and capers.  Toss with dressing.
Top with crumbled Feta, kalamata olives, and salad peppers, and black pepper.
We usually add a lot more Kalamata Olives and Feta for our salads.
For the Horiataki Salata (Village Style Salad)
Serves 4 - 6 
3-4 Tomatoes, seeded and diced  
1 Cucumber, peeled, cubed (and seeded if you want) 
1/2 Red Onion, thinly sliced  
1 Bell Pepper, cubed (optional) 
1/4 cup Capers (optional)
1-2 Pepperonici Salad Peppers per serving (optional)
1/2 cup Kalamata Olives 
1/2 cup Feta Cheese, cubed or crumbled 
Salad Dressing
1/2 cup Olive Oil (extra virgin preferred)
Juice of 2 Lemons
2 Tbs. - 1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar 
2 cloves Garlic, minced 
1 tsp. dried crumbled Oregano 
Sea Salt and fresh ground Black Pepper to taste
 (I prefer my pepper Coarse Ground)
Toss all the vegetables, olives and cheese* together in a large glass bowl. 
Whisk all the dressing ingredients together in another bowl. 
Pour the dressing into the bowl with the vegetables and toss together. 
Set aside to marinate for 30 minutes and serve cold or at room temperature.
I like to add some Capers and Pepperonici Salad Peppers to this salad
* Some people prefer their cheese added after the salad is made, others like to add 
the cheese, olives, salad peppers, and capers as garnish.
