A recipe for a July 4th celebration, or any other time you need a festiveside dish:

“Red, White and Blue” Patriot’s Salad


2 3/4 cups boiling water

1 package (4-ounce size) JELL-O Brand Strawberry FlavorGelatin Dessert, or any red flavor

1 package (4-ounce size) JELL-O Brand Berry Blue FlavorGelatin Dessert

1 cup cold water

1 package (4-ounce size) JELL-O Brand Lemon Flavor GelatinDessert

1 pint (2 cups) vanilla ice cream, softened

1 ½ cups blueberries


STIR1 cup of the boiling water into each of the red and blue gelatin in separatemedium bowls at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved Stir ½ cup of the cold water into each bowl.

PLACEbowl of red gelatin in larger bowl of ice and water. Stir until thickened, about 8 minutes. Stir n strawberries.  Pourinto 9×5-inch loaf pan.*  Refrigerate7 minutes.

MEANWHILE, stir remaining 3/4 cup boiling water into lemon gelatin in medium bowl atleast 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Spoon in ice cream until melted and smooth Spoon over red gelatin pan.  Refrigerate minutes.

MEANWHILE, place bowl of blue gelatin in larger bowl of ice and water. Stir until thickened, about 7 minutes. Stir in blueberries.  Spoonver lemon gelatin in pan.

REFRIGERATE4 hours or until firm.  Unmold. Garnish as desired.

*As a product of the sixties, I use a Tupperware moldinstead.  Use whatever is handy. The joy of Tupperware molds is that gelatins slide out easily. After years of struggling with warm-water “baths,” having a”slider” is very appealing.
