It seems like the 1960s were a groovy time to eat. Frozen salads were all the rage judging by the large section devoted to frozen salads in Favorite Recipes of America Salads cookbook. I wonder how these impacted the issues of the day! This recipe bears a striking resemblance to retro favorite: marshmallow-fruit fluff…but this time it is FROZEN!
Frozen Marshmallow-Pineapple Salad
½ lb. miniature marshmallows
1 c. crushed pineapple
¼ c grated pimiento or American Cheese
¼ c. mayonnaise
½ c. heavy cream, whipped
Combine marshmallows, pineapple, cheese and mayonnaise; fold in whipped cream. Pour into 8 or 9-inch pan; freeze. May be served on lettuce with Maraschino cherry flower and mayonnaise. Yield: 6-7 servings
