Directions

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water and blend in cold water, salt to taste, and vinegar.
Chill until syrupy thick.
Have ready shredded cabbage, carrots, bell pepper, pimiento and chives.
Fold into thickened gelatin and turn into an 8-inch square pan.

Vary with sliced stuffed olives in place of the green pepper and a little grated onion for the chives.
