When I think about Jell-O one of the first things that comes to my mind is, tomato sauce. I'm not quite sure what the connection is... perhaps tomato aspic? But tomatoes and gelatin most certainly belong together.
First off we have this delightful recipe for "Pink Salad." Now I've made lots of pink salads before, strawberry ice cream, raspberry whipping cream. But I've never tried a recipe quite like tomatoes and mayonnaise before.
Next up we have this avant-garde recipe for Cardinal Chicken Pie.
I bet you've never tired a pie like Cardinal Chicken Pie.
You can make it with chicken, tuna, crabmeat or lobster!
