An assortment of thoughts, inspirations, fiction and old fashioned rambling.
Ewwww! LOL Darlene that doesn't even sound good, but the visuals are great! You crack me up...enough said!Kathyhttp://gigglingtruckerswife.blogspot.com/
I used to make a 'salad' in jello back in the 70's. Orange jello with carrots, cabbage and topped with, wait for it......Mayo!It was delish as I recall. Been many years since I did that, but it was very popular back in the day. I might try it again one of these days and see if I still like it.
My Mom made that too, but I don't remember her putting mayo on top. I would skip the mayo since I really don't like the greasy stuff anyway, but I would consider trying the jello salad again.Back in the day, we had a lot of jello dishes. Mom liked finding new ones. My favorite was when she made her "jello topping", which was a thick white sauce with sugar and vanilla in the ingredient list. She spread it over the top of many different flavors and fruit mixtures...about 1/2 inch thick. I sure did love that topping. Hmmmm..... I may make some, now that I'm thinking about it!
My thoughts exactly!
Since I don't remember celery jello and have never seen it, can we assume it was a colossal fail????
ROTFL! If you only knew how much I hate Sülze... ugh... I mean anything in "aspic" except for fruit.
OMG!!! I forgot about that nasty stuff. I ate tomato aspic once in my life and I said "NEVER AGAIN". Yuck!
Then I bet you would be very excited about a local specialty here: pickled pigs feet/cow tongue/vegetables in aspic. That's the first thing that popped in my mind when I saw Jello for Salads.
Wow! You had to dig deep to find that old ad! Funny!
Thank you, Kat. I am honored and sincerely appreciate that you nominated me. I apologize for the delay in acknowledging. It seems that I forgot this blog and neglected to return for the comments until today. My face is red!
That's funny, Darlene! Had never heard of these types of salads before!
Okay --uhm-- I've never even heard of Jell-O Salad. I'm not entertaining the thought. If you say it was good, I'll believe you--but for now I'll just pass!!(I guess you could toss Jell-O salad and it wouldn't go flying everywhere...hmmm...ideas are forming!).LMAO! Cheers, Jenn
I love Jell-O with mandarin oranges in it! I've made it many other ways for other people, and they like it with a layer of fruit filled Jell-O, then topped with a whipped cream instead of water layer ;-)Love the second graphic, that was a hoot Darlene!

I LOOOOOOOOVEEEE vintage ads! You have to crack up at times over what people thought would be such a great idea and "oh so yummy". Jell-o salad???? Yech!!!! I'll stick to black cherry and raspberry, thank you.
True story: my mother would make jello molds nearly every time she cooked dinner. I hated them. Really, really hated them. And every night, she would ask, "do you want some jello mold?" We still laugh about this, many years later. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
I have a lot of great memories of jello salads my family made back in the '70's. I think I might even have the recipes somewhere. Might need to dig those out. Thanks for sharing! Brings back fond memories for me.
Wow, I must be hungry because it actually looks good. ugh

I didn't grow up with jello salads but, my husband did. I found a old vintage Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that is all about salads. And jello salads were big! I have been trying some of them out. Happy Valentine's Day!
I love Jello Salads!!!! Not a real salad, not always a real food, but always FUN!!!!!
