Jell-O Cookbook

Detail from The New Jell-O Book of Surprises. CHF Collections.

In the 1930s popular Jell-O recipes were as often savory as they were sweet. Though they sound somewhat unappetizing to modern palates, dishes like Jell-O Macaroni Salad were featured on dining tables across America. Tonight at CHF, we'll host a tasting of this very dish. Try it yourself and let us know what you think!

Macaroni Salad

Serves 6-8

1 package Lemon Jell-O

½ cup celery

½ cup cabbage, shredded

½ green pepper

1 cup cooked macaroni

Cook Jell-O according to package directions. Chill until Jell-O starts to set.  Stir in macaroni and vegetables.

Turn into mold. Chill until firm, then unmold.
