TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - One of the most popular shows on television in the ‘90s took place in an apartment in New York City as well as a diner where Jerry, George, Kramer and Elaine discussed .... well, everything. In some episodes, Elaine ordered a “big salad.” Jerry said the ingredients were big lettuce, big carrots and tomatoes like volleyballs.

This recipe is an homage to Elaine’s Big Salad. I hope you like it!
