Masters Tournament Menu

In college, a sorority sister of mine from Augusta, GA, turned me on to the copycat version of the infamous salad served at the (now closed) Green Jacket Restaurant, which was direclty across from the Augusta National, home of the Masters Tournament.

A quick online search for the Green Jacket Salad recipe turns up a few different versions, but here's the one I use.

Green Jacket Salad

1 bag Italian mix salad
Green onion, chopped
Shredded parmesan cheese

2-3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons seasoning salt
2 teaspoons Accent
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon fresh parsley

I like to start by whisking together the dressing ingredients in the bottom of the bowl, then just toss in the lettuce, parmesan cheese, onions and croutons about 20 minutes before serving. This gives it time for the croutons to get just a little soft which is really tasty in this salad.

One of my first questions to my girlfriend was "What in the world is Accent?" The little canister claims to "wake up food flavor" and, to be quite honest, I don't know if I'd miss it if I left it out of the dressing. But at this point, I'm scared to -- I follow the recipe, including the Accent. 

We enjoyed that salad this weekend along with some little pimiento cheese and egg salad finger sandwiches -- a staple of the Augusta National course. I had a chance to visit myself back when I was in college and it was such a fun experience!


  1. That salad looks so yum! Looks similar to the copycat Olive Garden salad I make :)

  2. Hi April! Oh my gosh- the salad looks delicious as does your finger sandwiches!! So funny- my husband was just telling me this morning one of his LIFE goals is to get invited to become a member of The Augusta National Golf Club! He obviously has some REAL priorities! ;) HA! Have a great week!

  3. This looks super yummy! Can't wait to try it myself!

  4. This is such a cute idea and so easy! bravo!

  5. That dressing sounds amazing, thanks for sharing! I need new recipes to add to my weekly list.. mine has gotten pretty boring.

  6. I am always on the hunt for a good salad recipe! This is on my menu next week, yum!!

  7. That is so fun!! And the salad dressing sounds delish! I need to remember to have a little Masters party next year! It's right around my hubs' bday so I could combine the two! Hope you're having a great day!

  8. What a fun menu! I will have to make this next year!

  9. Accent is MSG so I would use it sparingly ( restaurants use it a lot but you can actually ask them not to add it )

  10. One of my best friends always has to make Green Jacket salad for her Augustan husband- I think the recipe is in Tea Time at the Masters. Delish! And. . this might freak people out, but Accent is actually MSG. It's really good for upping the umami of anything- especially burgers.

  11. Saving that salad, it looks delicious! I love your menu for such a fun event! Xo, Stephanie
