Unc, back in the 60’s there was a Polynesian restaurant in Jax, Fl on Philips Hwy called “Trader Glicks”..the owners name was Glickstein. 
They had the most wonderful salad with a ginger type dressing. If you could get the recipe I would be fore ever grateful...Thx dean 

Hi Dean,

I had no success locating anything at all about the food at Trader Glick’s. There are a few scattered mentions of the place, but no recipes or even a menu. I’ll post this on the site. Perhaps a reader can help.

Someone calling himself “The Son of Trader Glick” posted on this message board about two years ago. Might be worth it for you to see if he’ll respond to a post: Tiki Room

Irving Glickstein owned “The Lobster House” in Jacksonville, which burned in 1962. Perhaps he also owned “Trader Glick’s”. However, I had no success finding a ginger salad (dressing) recipe from that restaurant, either.



Mr. Glickstein must have descendants. Possibly some of them actually worked in the kitchen at the restaurant. Little help? Please?
