Lime Gelatin, Shrimp, and Grapefruit Salad

Okay, I would NEVER in a million years make this, but as I was reading through the Lion House Cookbook the other day I came across this recipe. It was too entertaining not to share.

1 large package lime gelatin
1 cup boiling water
6-8 ice cubes
2 T sliced olives
1 T sweet pickle relish
1/2 T minced onions
1 tsp prepared mustard
1 tsp vinegar
3/4 cup shrimp
1 1/2 cups grapefruit sections, drained
3 T chipped green peppers
1/4 cup heavy cream, whipped
1/4 cup mayo

Make up gelatin according to package directions, using boiling water and ice cubes for the ice cube method. Cool until syrupy. Add remaining ingredients except mayo and cream.

Pour into 1 1/2 quart mold or 8 individual molds. Chill until firm. Unmold or cut and serve on lettuce leaves. Top with a dollop of mayo or mayo fluffed with whipped cream, if desired.

Can you say YUCK?!?!

I almost did the same kind of post! I have this old cookbook from SLC from my grandma and there are some GROSS recipes in there,... like lime jello and tuna fish. I'll say YUCK!

HaHaHa!!!! YUCKY for sure! That is hilarious! Eww! It seems like to me, the grapefriut juices would curdle the cream too!

YUCK. This recipe scares me! Rich's mom likes to make a jello dish at Thanksgiving that is lemon jello and tomato juice with celery and olives in it. She is THE ONLY ONE who will touch the stuff.
