Roast Beef Salad Supper

In the 19th century, dinner (or supper, as it was properly called) was usually a light fare. As the saying went, “Breakfast like a king; lunch like a prince; dinner like a pauper.” People worked hard and ate their calories early in the day. A light beef salad would have been very welcome and appropriate for guests in the evening. We added some celery to this recipe for crunch, although the humble celery was a bit of a luxury to people like the March family.

Mayonnaise wasn’t sold in commercial jars in America until 1907, although it has been a popular condiment in France since the 18th century. Women would have made their own before that. For convenience sake, we suggest you use store-bought mayonnaise.
