The concept of using fresh and raw ingredients to create a salad has been passed down through generations, resulting in the diverse salad recipes we have today.

Instructions for Winter Salad:
1. Cut the white stalks of the celery into small bits.
2. Dice the boiled potatoes and beets into small cubes.
3. Boil the large white onion and cut it up into smaller pieces.
4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the celery, potatoes, beets, and onion.

- 2 ounces of butter
- 1 yolk of an egg
- Salt and cayenne (to taste)

Instructions for Cheese Straws:
1. In a mixing bowl, combine the grated Parmesan cheese, flour, butter, yolk of an egg, salt, and cayenne.
2. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated, forming a dough-like consistency.
3. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is approximately one-eighth of an inch thick.
4. Using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, cut the rolled-out dough into very narrow strips.
5. Place the strips on a buttered baking tin, ensuring they are well spaced to prevent them from sticking together.
