Mazza’s Salad

KimKim Chambers

This is a very popular salad recipe for Mount Vernon, OH. It was originated at a restaurant of the same name, Mazza’s, which, unfortunately, is now closed after 75+ years. There are a couple of other restaurants in town that now serve it, but no one did while Mazza’s was still in business. I was given the recipe by a friend almost 30 years ago.


  • 1 head iceberg lettuce
  • Break lettuce into bite size pieces. Cover with damp paper towel. Set in refrigerator for 1/2 to 1 hour.
  • Dressing –
  • 3 t. olive oil
  • 1 T. salad vinegar
  • 1 1/2 t. minced garlic
  • 1 t. salt
  • Mix/stir together.
  • After the 1/2 to 1 hour, pour over lettuce. Also add –
  • 3 T. crumbled gorgonzola cheese


  • 1

    Mix all together. I use my hands. It seems easiest!
