Don't you be turning up your nose at jellied salad until you try it.
I know lots of people who would eat dog turds on a bun before they'd eat my Yellow Jellied Salad but they're just silly. This is the best jellied salad in town, any town, and it's the perfect accompaniment to a turkey dinner. Its sweet, tart and crunchy yumminess makes even the driest bird easy to swallow.
This enhanced cole slaw recipe comes from my mom, who probably got it from her mom, but she forgets. Regardless, I have adopted it as my own and now am the official purveyor of Yellow Jellied Salad at all family functions.
As promised, here's the recipe:
Yellow Jellied Salad
Finely chop and mix in a medium-sized glass bowl:
2 cups cabbage
1 stalk celery
5 green onions
Add 1 tbsp. white vinegar and toss.
Pour one cup of boiling water into a small bowl.
Add one package Jello lemon jello powder. Yes, it has to be lemon. No, it can't be diet.
Stir until jello powder is dissolved.
Add 3/4 cup Miracle Whip salad dressing and stir with a wire whisk until smooth.
Pour jelly mixture over vegetables, give a quick stir and stick bowl in the fridge.
This salad sets up quickly and is best enjoyed the same day it is made. After a day the red from the radishes gets runny and the salad turns pink. You really don't want that.
No Miracle Whip in your neck of the woods? I guess you could substitute mayonnaise. If you have to.
