Perfection Salad image

You can omit the sugar and the unflavored gelatin and lemon juice--and use a 3 oz. package of lemon or lime Jell-O in place of them. Keep the water amounts and vinegar and salt the same. Recipe from Maytag Dutch Oven Cookbook- 1949.

1 pkg unflavored gelatin, 1 tablespoon
1/2 c cold water
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
1/4 c water, cold
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 c boiling water
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 c finely shredded cabbage

  • 1. Sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 c. cold water for 5 minutes. Add vinegar and 1/4 more cup water, lemon juice, boiling water, sugar and salt. Stir until dissolved. Cool to room temperature. Add cabbage, celery and carrots, distributing them evenly throughout gelatin mixture.
