Hearty Corned Beef Salad for St. Patricks Day

Mid Century Menu is a blog where RetroRuth reproduces recipes of the 1950s and thereabouts. You know, the recipes that use Jell-o, Miracle Whip, and Campbell’s soup that we laugh at today. For St. Patricks Day last year, she tried Hearty Corned Beef Salad. Now, corned beef is not a thing in Ireland, although it was adopted by early Irish-American immigrants. And of course, the recipe is molded with Jell-o -lemon flavor this time. Other ingredients are corned beef, mayonnaise, celery, onions, peppers, and hard-boiled eggs. If that sounds totally disgusting, check out the reaction from RetroRuth’s husband, Tom:

“How horrible is it?”

“I love it.”

“Shut up! Seriously?”


“You know, maybe you have been eating too many gelatins.”

“Or drinking too many drinks. There might be lots of reasons.”

The most remarkable thing about the recipe is the sound it made. Read all about the experience at Mid Century Menu. -via Metafilter
