What Has Holland Ever Done to You, Ms. Berry?

I ask because Ms. Berry, author of 300 Sensational Salads, has named this next concoction Holland Salad. Why? No clue, unless residents of the Netherlands have a previously unnoticed fondness for dicing, mincing and shredding sour foods. How would you like it if we renamed it Lucinda Salad, huh? Yes, that's right, I went there, Ms. Lucinda Berry.

1 cup diced cooked veal or beef
1 large sour pickle, minced
1 large apple, peeled and diced
1 cup diced cooked potatoes
1 small onion, minced
1 TBS. vegetable oil
1 1/2 TBS. vinegar
2 TBS. mayonnaise

Mix first 5 ingredients. Combine oil, vinegar and mayonnaise; add to meat mixture and mix well. Garnish with additional mayonnaise, sliced hard boiled eggs and shredded pickled beets.
