The salad that my Mon used to call "Perfection Salad" was orange jello, carrots, and pineapple. I don't think she had a recipe as such, but she used one or two packages of orange jello or maybe one of orange and one of lemon, a can of crushed pineapple (drained) and carrots she ground in an old fashioned grinder. This was then cut in squares and served on a leaf of lettuce with a dolop of mayonaise on top. I later named it "Sunday Salad" because we had it almost every Sunday. Hope this helps. Barb in Kansas
1 box lemon Jell-O 1 c. chopped cabbage 1 c. chopped celery 1/2 c. grated carrots A few pieces of either red or green peppers if you have them 1 tbsp. vinegar Pinch of salt 1/2 c. sugar
Dissolve Jell-O in 1 cup boiling water and add 1 cup cold water, sugar, salt and vinegar. Stir. Cool until syrupy. Then add cabbage, celery, carrots and green peppers. I like to serve a small dish of mayonnaise along with it.
1 sm. pkg. lemon Jell-O 1 med. can crushed pineapple without juice, but save for use in making Jell-O 2 to 3 oz. cream cheese Cut up pimientos or cherries 1/3 c. finely chopped celery 2/3 c. chopped walnuts 1 c. heavy whipped cream
Use pineapple juice to make Jell-O. Add pineapple to Jell-O. Let partially jell. Put cream cheese in mixer and cream until smooth. Add partial set Jell-O and mix together. Add celery and nuts. Fold whipped cream and cherries or pimientos last. Chill in mold.
