A Glistening Pink and Silver Salad ?!

Submitted for your entertainment...
Here is a recipe from The Work Basket magazine, May, 1955.  I remember eating lots of aspic salads when I was a kid, usually a tomato juice mold with lots of vegetables embedded throughout served on an enormous bed of lettuce from the garden. Maybe it was the dollop of mayonaise or the home grown lettuce but I loved them all!  My mother even used to make a small container of aspic for my school lunch. When I looked at this I thought, "might not be bad with some anchovies".  Just goes to show what a person remembers fondly from childhood.... Click on the photo for the very large version.  The other recipes on the scanned page are simple classics. Enjoy!
