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.
