Have you ever tried this? It's an oldie from the 50's, very cooling, almost as good as air conditioning.
1⁄2 cup sugar
1⁄3 cup rice vinegar
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp. unflavored powdered gelatin,
softened in 1⁄2 cup cold water
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 cups chopped celery
1 cup finely shredded cabbage
2 jarred pimentos, minced
1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded,
Canola oil, for greasing
1. Stir together sugar, vinegar, lemon juice, gelatin, and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat until gelatin dissolves; chill 30 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients.
2. Grease a 12" x 4" x 2 1⁄2 " loaf pan and transfer gelatin mixture to mold. Chill until set, about 6 hours.
3. To release salad from mold, slide a knife along the edge of the mold; set mold in a bowl of hot water for 5 seconds. Invert salad onto a serving dish.
