Vintage Salads

Have a salad you remember from your childhood?  With the invention of the internet it is so easy to find such things now.  Lots of mayonnaise... lots of jello... things like marshmallows and cottage cheese and Cool Whip filled the salads of yesteryear.  LOL  Here are just a few links to vintage recipes...

Yep... one of Dan's favorites minus the cherries...  THE GREEN JELLO SALAD!


Something similar to this recipe called a CRANBERRY FROZEN SALAD or this one

Both of these last two could double as a dessert but they get called salad and are ALWAYS served alongside the meal.
