Cookbook:Betty's Salad

Cookbook | Ingredients | Recipes

Betty's Salad is a regional, Midwest salad created by Betty Timko and featured as a menu item at her restaurant, Timko's Soup and Such, in Toledo, Ohio. The restaurant was located in a brick building at the northwest corner of Sylvania and Douglas Roads of the Devaux Village strip mall in West Toledo [1]. After Betty died, the restaurant closed, and her signature salad dressing is still produced and distributed at regional grocery stores.
