RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
AVOCADO SALAD MOLD, American
This recipe is a great example of a 1950s style molded salad. (Mold as in shape...). They seemed to be nuts about molded salads back then, almost like somebody got hold of a pack of Jell-O and then everyone went hog wild! This is also a noteworthy recipe in that it uses avocado, but is in no way influenced by Mexican versions.
Dissolve gelatine in boiling water: add cold water, lemon juice and horseradish. Chill until mixture is partially set. Carefully stir in avocado, grapefruit, celery and pimiento. Pour into mold and chill until firm. Makes 12 servings

Many of these wonderful recipes are ones I stumbled upon quite by accident while sleuthing through the decades in my quest to assemble the world of the American housewife. RH
