Ham on Po-Boy dressed

Posted by Cheryl on December 24, 2003

Here in New Orleans when we order a Po-Boy we asked for dressed if we want lettuce, tomatoe etc on the sandwich. I have never given it a second thought........... until now. I had a Vietnamese lady ask me why do we use the word "dressed" when referring to food. When did it start and WHY?
