Perfection Salad


  • 2 tablespoonfuls granulated gelatine
  • 1/2 cupful cold water
  • 1/2 cupful vinegar
  • 1 lemon, juice
  • 2 cupfuls boiling water
  • 1/2 cupful sugar
  • 1 teaspoonful salt
  • 1 1/2 cupfuls sliced celery
  • 1 1/2 cupfuls shredded cabbage
  • 3 pimentos chopped


Prepare all ingredients, except the vegetables, as for a gelatine mixture (see Lemon Jelly). When the mixture begins to set, stir in the vegetables, and pour into a mold. Serve on lettuce leaves with Mayonnaise Dressing.

Other vegetable mixtures such as cucumbers and tomatoes or peas and celery molded in jelly make tasty salads.
