To Ethy Mae
I'm not a chef, but simple research shows this is a salad - originated in the 17th century. The name comes from a French word meaning hodgepodge.

Any Chef: re: Salmagondi recipie.
This needs explaining...bowl on a dish? Upside down, right side up...Where does this recipe originate from. I can't even envision what this might look like. This is a weird one. Has anyone at the kitchens ever made this? I'v been cooking for about 66 years and haven't come across something as confusing as this. Thanks for reading this, and giving an answering. Ethy Mae.
