*The Salad BedThis is our antique hand carved youth bed which sits in the dining room of the lodge.  It is over 100 years old and belonged to the woman who raised me (Susan) as our beloved housekeeper, Vera Ham.  She is the one person to whom I attribute my culinary skills – I learned at her knee.  Our daughter Courtney slept in this bed until she was four – At that time, Mrs. Ham was still with us, baking apple pies for Oak Cove guests at the age of 85.  We have since made this bed into a salad bar from which you may build your own salad from as many as 18-20  fresh ingredients.  We also make our own  seven salad dressings which are served from an old Singer sewing machine cabinet at the foot of the bed on a “Busy Susan”.  No lazy here!

Ingredients:   lettuces: Ice burg,, Leaf, Romaine, Spinach, and specialty lettuces mixed-in:  including Salad Bedvariety lettuces, and hydroponic leaves (such as oak, escarole, endive, dandelion, etc. grown in water with no soil). Toppers include:  Carrots, celery, onions, green onions, cucumber, zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes, green, yellow or red peppers, broccoli, mushrooms, red cabbage, garbanzo beans, black olives, green olives, kalamata olives, fresh cooked green peas, whole kernel corn, sunflower seeds, bacon bits, raisins, artichoke hearts, croutons, grated cheddar cheese,  diced hard boiled eggs, cottage cheese, pineapple chunks,   pepperoncini, cherry peppers, and anything else we can think to put out to please your taste buds.

Salad Dressings: Hidden  Valley Ranch made in our kitchen, Oak Cove French Dressing,  Zesty Italian  Salad Dressing, Caesar Dressing, Balsamic Garlic Dressing, Fresh Blue Cheese Dressing, and of course Olive Oil and several Vinegars.
