You can omit the sugar and the unflavored gelatin and lemon juice--and use a 3 oz. package of lemon or lime Jell-O in place of them. Keep the water amounts and vinegar and salt the same.
Recipe from Maytag Dutch Oven Cookbook- 1949.

How to Make Perfection Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 c. cold water for 5 minutes. Add vinegar and 1/4 more cup water, lemon juice, boiling water, sugar and salt. Stir until dissolved. Cool to room temperature. Add cabbage, celery and carrots, distributing them evenly throughout gelatin mixture. Individual salad molds can be used or and attractive dish that makes the salad thick enough to cut into attractive servings. (I used my bread loaf pan) Refrigerate until set. Serve on lettuce leaves.
