Julesrules, I saw your post on general topics and I think you live in Toronto. I so relate to the original post and I too have stopped ordering this salad in restaurants. I even asked the very snooty waiter at an upscale restaurant if the salad was "real" and he said in a very rude way "of course". I was then promptly served a plate of creamy sweet crap. So, the point is you said you knew a hole in the wall that made a good one and I'm hoping it's in Toronto. Please let me know.
