Candle Salad from A Child's First Cook Book - 1950
When I was around 7 years old (in 1952) I received my first cookbook. The copyright date is 1950. I remember thinking I was so grown up to have my very own cookbook. I made lots of the recipes, you can tell which ones were my favorites because those pages are well stained. I remember my favorite was Candle Salad and second was Lemonade. My younger brothers would drink the Lemonade and eat the cherry off the top of the Candle Salad. I think this is a fun salad for kiddos, with a little modernizing. You could use fresh pineapple and prepared topping (Cool Whip) on top instead of the mayonnaise. Maybe I will show you other recipes later.
Isn't that an interesting can opener. Even I don't remember those, and for a child - what were they thinking??
You can see that I was printing my name on all my belongings. What a treasure this book is - to me.
