Georgia Cracker Salad

I've been cooking along with Paula for a long time.  
This is the first cookbook of hers that I bought, and I use it a lot because so many of her recipies are the kind I grew up on and still love. 

One of my favorites from this cookbook is Georgia Cracker Salad.

You can see how quick and easy it is to prepare.

There are only five ingredients:  saltines, tomato, hard boiled egg, green onions and mayonaise.

Break up the saltines, with your  hands into  coarse pieces.

Mix chopped tomato, chopped green onions and hard boiled egg.  Add mayonaise and...

...serve immediately on a bed of lettuce.

There. Quick and easy and perfect for a Summer day.

Bon appetit, y'all. :)

See y'all at  Lynn's @ Happier Than a Pig in Mud for the     Celebrity Cook-along, Paula Deen.

Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits... y'all come back now, ya hear?

Babs, that looks so good and I love easy. I will have to try this. Now I just need a good Georgia tomato.

Babs, never heard of this salad. Thanks for the recipe. It looks like a good one for an quick, easy dish. ~ Sarah

That seems so truly southern with the crackers and mayo and egg. It sounds truly intriguing. I know I would love the crunch of the crackers. We are going to have to try it and I am not going to tell anyone what is in it! A whole Paula Deen meal would be fun wouldn't it?

Lynn said...

Hi Babs! I have never heard of this salad before, it is really different! Can't wait to give it a try when tomatoes come into season in Philly. Thanks so much for joining the Cook-Along:@)

Mary said...

I have never heard of this salad before, the combination of ingredients with the saltines sounds interesting! I'm surprised Paula didn't insist on Duke's mayonaise in her recipe :-)

Pat said...

Oh! Just got my tomato plants in the ground, so about August, I will try this. Simple but good. Thanks for the idea.

This looks so good served on a bed of lettuce the way you've done. I've made something similar but I've never put the hard boiled egg in it. I will definitely make this soon.

Well, who would have thought crackers made into a salad..what a great idea. I'll be trying this one soon. Thanks so much.

Hey Babs...this looks awesome. Great ingredients and so easy. How do you think it would taste if you substituted the saltines with Ritz? I'm not really a saltine lover...Hope you are having a lovely weekend! ~Ann

That is a keeper! I really love her show and of course I love easy!

Hi, Babs! My best friend bought me this cookbook when she was in Savannah about a year-and-a-half ago. (I think it was this that jinxed me and why I'm having to move there now!) :-) I saw this recipe for cracker salad. I may have to try it now that I have seen your picture of it. Have a great weekend!

Hi Babs, this looks so good. I love a good quick salad for the hot summers here in GA. I don't have this cookbook of Paula's but I do think I will get it.

Marigene said...

I have that cookbook but haven't ever opened it...guess I will haul it out to see what else it has to offer...that salad looks delicious, Babs.

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida said...

Okay, fess up, how did it taste? I have to confess, the whole idea intrigues me, but I can't imagine how a salad with crackers as the main ingredient would taste.


Hi Babs...thanks for this recipe and step by step pics! I'm making shrimp for lunch today and I'm going to do this salad. Thanks for sharing it and thank you for stopping by my house and leaving me such wonderfully sweet comments, you're so generous! Have a nice week.

Hi Babs,
Visiting you today from Lynn's place. This "salad" from Paula looks yummy and will make a great side to serve all through the summer.
Thanks for sharing.
Maggie said...

Oh, this looks really good. I am going to have to file this away for future use.

Karen said...
