Oyster Salad

From 1922:

Ingredients: One dozen oysters, cayenne pepper, salt, mayonnaise sauce, one lettuce, a little cress, and small slices of lemon.
Method: Wash, drain and shred the lettuce very finely, and arrange a bed of this on six little china dishes, or if preferred, on one large dish. Put two oysters in each, and sprinkle with cayenne pepper and salt. Then coat the oysters with some thick mayonnaise, and garnish with small cress and a small slice of lemon. This salad is sufficient for six persons.
