Bring Back the Jiggle...


Everything that goes around comes around.  Congealed salads are the latest darling of the food world, they were always on Mother’s table in the 50’s a nd 60’s and now they’re back in a big way.

My all time favorite is Perfection Salad, made the way mother did with pineapple, carrots and cabbage in lime or lemon Jello, it’s a oldie but goodie.

Lucy’s Perfection Salad

2 (3 oz.) pkgs. lemon or lime Jello

1/4 head cabbage, chopped

2 carrots, chopped or grated

1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple

Dissolve Jello in 2 cups boiling water; stir well. Add 1 1/2 cups cold water. Add vegetables and pineapple with juice.

Put in jello mold and chill several hours.

We made this when I was growing up and served it with a dollop of mayonnaise.

I think my grandmother made this in a 9x13" pan with a cream cheese topping (?). I think this is it! We loved it. Going to make it and take it over to my 92 yr old Father's house. I hope it's the same one. Thank you so so much!
