2 packages lemon gelatine
Boil, and stuff eggs, cutting them lengthwise, removing yel-lows, and season as desired with mayonnaise, salt, pepper, paprika, a chopped pickle or relish. Put back together and place in loaf cake pan. Pour gelatine over eggs and when congealed, turn out on lettuce leaves, fill hole with salad dressing. This is very attractive served at the table by the hostess.
8-10 apples 2 cups sugar 1 cup water
2-3 sticks of cinnamon
Make a thin syrup of sugar, water, cinnamon and coloring. Core and pare apples. Cook in syrup until tender but be careful and do not break. Allow to cool. Serve on lettuce leaf with salad dressing. The center may be filled with cream cheese and nuts. This is a very delicious salad. It may be used as a dessert if whipped cream is used instead of salad dressing.
Cut slices of canned pineapple in two. Place two halves with the curved sides together on a lettuce leaf. These are the two wings. Make the body of the butterfly with a stoned date, the feelers of candied orange peel, the spots on the wings of rings of stuffed olives or maraschino cherries. Pass the mayonnaise or place it beneath the butterfly.
Celery Apples Red grapes
Mayonnaise Peaches Cloves Pimento
Make a nest of shredded lettuce. On this place a salad of celery, grapes, and apples, allowing for each serving about two tablespoons of chopped celery and chopped apple and six grapes, cut in halves, and blended with mayonnaise. On this salad place a half peach, with the rounded side up. Insert two whole cloves for the eyes, one (with the large end down) for the nose, and a narrow strip of pimento for the mouth. This strip may be placed at different angles to give different expressions. This salad is particularly good for Halloween parties.

Arrange on shredded lettuce on individual plates and serve with French dressing.
