In honor of Thanksgiving, I thought that I would pull one out from my childhood.  Any child of the 1950's should remember the good old green jello salad that was served by every school cafeteria for Thanksgiving and I think every other holiday also.  Remember the vegetables floating in it.  All together now - Eeeewwwwww!  So here it is, one of those recipes that needs to stay forgotten!

(or Icky Green Jello Salad)

1 (3 oz.) lime Jello

1 (3 oz.) lemon Jello

3 1/2 c. boiling water

1 tbsp. vinegar

4 tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. salt

1/2 c. salad dressing

2 c. chopped cabbage

1/2 c. chopped celery

1/4 c. green pepper

1/2 c. grated carrot

2 tbsp. onion

Stir together Jello, boiling water, vinegar, sugar, and salt. When nearly congealed, add 1/2 cup salad dressing and beat until frothy. Add the vegetables, stir well, and mold.
