More from the 1959 Foodarama Thanksgiving Menu: Three Layer Salad

That does not look like a salad, does it? And – those are cups of mayonnaise in lemon halves on the sides. Who wants to serve this for Thanksgiving?

2 pkg. (3 oz. each) lemon-flavored gelatin

2 cups boiling water

2 cups cold water

2/3 cup chopped sweet pickle

2/3 cup chopped walnuts

2/3 cup sliced stuffed olives

Curly endive

Lemon Cups

Empty gelatin into a bowl and dissolve it in the boiling water; stir in cold water. Add and stir in pickles, nuts and olives. Pour into a 6-cup mold; chill in the Fresh Food Compartment of your Foodarama until firm. (Pickles, nuts and olives will self-layer.) Unmold ona platter. Garnish salad with endive and Lemon Cups. Makes 8 – 12 servings – if anyone eats this thing.

    Looks like something my mother would’ve found in an old Good Housekeeping magazine back in the 70′s and tried to force on us kids. She always wanted to try new & interesting recipes. We just wanted mac & cheese. Just say no to this recipe.

    The first word that comes to mind is “scary.” I like trying new recipes…but I think I’ll pass on this one. Looking forward to seeing how your fruitcake turned out!
