when spam meets jello

You've tried Swedish Meatballs. You've had Swedish Fish. Maybe you've even tried lutefisk.
But do you dare try the Swedish Salad Mold? ...Do you think IKEA would add it to their menu?
According to Facebook, my actual nationality is Swedish, therefore I should think this salad looks like a tasty treat. But even though, I enjoy a great many unfortunate food combinations, I don't think I'd eat this, even if Bill Cosby came personally and offered it to me.

Isn't it amazing how jello can be made into so many different food groups. Jello can be a fruit, a vegetable, dairy, and yes... even a main dish with meat. And this is what you get when you mix the all American flavor of Spam with gelatin.

I found this recipe in American Home Magazine from 1952 in a special section "Take a can of Luncheon Meat." Which I'm including in whole, because it's just so great.
