    Julesong's Note:

    A family recipe dating back to the early part of the 20th century, by my great-grandmother. I have a tendency to think of this as Grandpa's salad, because he always prepared it for us. My mom and sister still make it for our holiday family gatherings, although now we usually use sugarfree Jello. (I've recently discovered that Perfection Salad is not something unique to our family - there are a lot of old recipes on net for it. They're generally similar to the one below.)

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pour boiling water over jello in bowl.
    2. 2
      Stir until jello is disolved.
    3. 3
      Stir in vinegar, veggies, salt, and cold water.
    4. 4
      Pour into mold, chill until firm.
    5. 5
      Serve unmolded on chilled plate, topped with a generous dollop of mayonnaise (family tradition of the last 30 years or so demands that you use Best Foods mayo brand - *never* Miracle Whip).
    6. 6
      If preferred, use 1/2 cup celery and 1 cup grated carrot.
    7. 7
      You can use sugar-free jello for a diabetic/lowcarb version of Perfection Salad. Sometimes lemon jello is difficult to find - we've sometimes used lime instead.

      This is an old favorite that I made yesterday for our Thanksgiving Feast. I used sugar free jello and because I didn't have any pimento I used a couple of sweet hot pickled cherry peppers and they went wonderfully into the mix. Delicious! We all really enjoyed!
