Frozen Walnut Salad

Russ Myers


Adapted from the July 15, 1941 edition of Wisconsin Energy Cooperative Magazine

When days are hot and appetites wane, try this new frozen salad in your electric refrigerator. It may be made without the salad dressing if your family prefers it that way, and you may use any fruits you have on hand or a can of fruit cocktail can be pressed into service.

How many can remember when we used "ice boxes" because the new electric refrigerators were so costly, or possible not yet available in your area ?
