Columbia Restaurant’s 1905 Salad - Weekend Potluck 365

A virtual recipe swap with dozens of new recipes from some of the TOP recipe creators online and on Pinterest!

I don't know what the story is behind the name of this 1905 Salad or where the Columbia Restaurant even is but I want to make this salad! ASAP! The recipe immediately caught my eye in last week's Weekend Potluck so I was tickled to see it was the recipe with the most clicks!

And I'm sooooo glad we're featuring the No Bake Hershey’s Chocolate Bar Pie because... errrrmm... well, I might be the only person I know who hasn't tried this pie! I have heard people talk about it for years and I know it's super easy but I've never made it or tried it myself - time to fix that!

I have a serious weakness for danish and stuffed peppers remind me so much of my granddad it makes my heart hurt so I can't wait to check out our two other features as well! Take a look at our four featured recipes from last week then scroll down to see what's new this week!

  1. Just an FYI, the Columbia Restaurant is here in Tampa, FL serving authentic Spanish (primarily Cuban) food. The restaurant first opened it's doors in 1905 (originally as a coffee & sandwich shop), hence the name of the 1905 salad! :)
    If you're ever in Tampa, I encourage you to visit the original restaurant in Ybor City (they have since expanded and there are several others around the state).
    And yes, I live in Tampa and have been to the Columbia many times. I was pleasantly surprised to see it featured on your site!

  2. Columbia's 1905 salad is da'Bomb! And the restaurant is well worth the visit, if you're ever in the Ybor City, FL area!

  3. Thank you so much for featuring my glazed cherry cheese danish! It's a new favorite here in my family and I hope you enjoy it too!

  4. There is also a Columbia Restaurant in St. Augustine, Florida. It really is fantastic, especially with their hot Cuban bread!


Hi there! While I’m not able to respond to every comment, I try hard to answer any questions that haven’t been addressed in the post, recipe or in other comments.

I can tell you now 1) I have no idea if you can substitute Minute Rice or brown rice in my recipes because I’ve never used them and 2) If I know how to convert a recipe to a Crock Pot version, I will make a note about it (otherwise, I don’t know).

And though I may not respond to them all, I do read each and every comment and I LOVE to hear from you guys! Thanks, y’all! - Mandy
