Supper Chicken Salad (1968)

Okay, I know today we find this a very odd combination of ingredients but this was so common in the 1950’s and 60’s that I just can’t ignore the importance of Jello salads. This could just about be a meal in itself 🙂

1 pkg. lime gelatin
1 C. boiling water
1/2 t. salt
1 T. grated onion
1/2 C. whipping cream
1/2 C. mayonnaise

Combine gelatin, hot water, salt and onion. Stir until dissolved and let cool. Beat cream; add the mayonnaise and mix well. Add to the gelatin mixture and stir well. Pour mixture over the following salad ingredients and mix well.

3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 pound longhorn cheese, chopped
1 t. green pepper, cut small
3 C. celery, chopped fine
1 C. cooked, chopped chicken
1 C. chopped walnuts

Let this stand in refrigerator overnight and garnish with stuffed olives before serving.
