One of my favorite things about traveling is trying delicious unique twists on everyday dishes. Dishes that are similar to what we eat at home regularly but taste even BETTER.
To be honest, it’s not often that I find myself salivating over memories of a delicious salad. Especially when reminiscing about a wonderful trip. However, that was the case after our visit to the Beverly Hills Hotel this summer. The Polo lounge has the best ever salad recipe!
We all absolutely loved the famous McCarthy salad. I’ve honestly dreamt of returning to the Beverly Hills Hotel to enjoy another fabulous stay and to dine on that salad in a luxe cabana by the pool. Then I’d order it again for dinner in the Polo Lounge! Seriously, we ordered that salad THREE TIMES during our stay- it’s that good!
So in an effort to share this most popular recipe and recreate it at home, I contacted the hotel and requested the recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much in your home as we did during our stay this summer!
My tip – Make the salad and pour yourself a tall glass of champagne. Imagine you are enjoying a Beverly Hills power lunch surrounded by celebrities and Hollywood royalty at the hotel’s famous Polo Lounge!
And here is a fun fact: The Polo Lounge’s most popular signature dish is the McCarthy Salad. It’s named in honor of polo player Neil McCarthy who used to frequent the hotel. Nearly 600 McCarthy salads are sold in the hotel’s restaurants and through in-room dining each week!

If you’d like to make this better (from a flavour perspective), switch the positions of the tomato and the beetroot.
