Molded Vegetable Salad Recipe

Molded Vegetable Salad Recipe

I FOUND this recipe years ago in an old cookbook. By using different colored gelatins, it blends in well with special holiday dinners. Of course, I use lime for our St. Patrick's Day celebration. Whatever the holiday, this salad is a big hit and there's seldom any leftover. -Pauline Albert, Catasauqua, Pennsylvania
