Just what is a salad?
Here's what I found on the Webster online dictionnay: any of various usually cold dishes; small pieces of food mixed with dressing;OR SET IN GELATIN!!!
Which explains a LOT! I already spoke of my Jell-O mold aversion. My mother's family would do them all time and of course this being the 60's and 70's I had NO CHOICE, I had to eat those giggly pucky things!
So today I bring you the Salad Cook Book from the Better Cooking Library.
Printed in 1964....right smack in the Jell-O mold heyday!
I found this book at the Salvation army of course and I could not resist it....Unfortunately the pics are black and white....but still quite explicit.
ok now what is this??? Frosted vegetable loaf...I laughed sooo hard I just scanned the picture and didn't bother with reading the recipe!
Do you entertain with Jell-O molds? Jiggly salads? Frosted food? Please leave a comment to tell me how! It will be fascinating!
Have a great day and for more retro fun stop by www.suburbanmom.com !
