Man-of-War Salad

For twenty-five persons


  • 2 quarts chopped hard white cabbage
  • 3 boxes of gelatin
  • 3 cans of tomatoes
  • 4 chopped onions
  • 1 cupful of chopped celery tops, if you have them
  • juice of 1 lemon, or 2 tablespoonfuls of vinegar
  • 1 level tablespoonful of salt
  • 10 drops of Tabasco sauce
  • Indian relish


Chop sufficient hard white cabbage to make two quarts. Cover it with cold water, let it soak for an hour, and then wash it through several cold waters, and dry it in a towel. Cover gelatin with a pint of cold water to soak a half hour. Open cans of tomatoes, put them in a saucepan with onions, celery tops, bring to a boil, add the juice of a lemon or vinegar, salt, Tabasco sauce, and the gelatin. Stir a moment, and press through a sieve. Dip bread pans or melon molds in cold water, put in a layer of cabbage, then a very thin layer of Indian relish, then cabbage, and so continue until the molds are filled. Pour over the tomato jelly, cold, and stand aside over night. Serve in slices with cooked or French dressing.
