Perfection Salad
In 1905, a Pennsylvania housewife won third prize in a Knox Gelatin contest with a recipe called "Perfection Salad". It's been a great American favorite ever since. Over the years it has appeared in many cookbooks in many variations. This version is adapted from the original recipe.

What You Need:
  • 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • ½ cup finely chopped cabbage
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped pimiento

  • How To Cook:
    1. Soften gelatin in cold water in a medium bowl. Add boiling water; stir to dissolve.

    2. Mix in sugar, salt, lemon juice, and vinegar. Chill until partially set.

    3. Fold in remaining ingredients and turn into a 4-cup mold or 4 individual molds.

    4. Chill several hours until firm. Unmold onto a chilled plate over salad greens, if desired.

    5. Serve alone or with mayonnaise.
