"My mom used to serve this every Christmas on a bed of lettuce, crispy iceberg, and surrounded with green and red grapes. Pecans can be substituted for walnuts."

I have eaten this ever since I can remember but we knew it as "perfection salad". My mother made without the nuts. It was made in a 9x13 glass baking pan and served a topping of mayonaise which really adds to its delicious combination.
Sorry but this just didn't do it for me and I love Lime Jello. The cabbage was bland and felt like a mouthful when the jello was gone. We did use pecans instead of walnuts and they were the best part of the dish. I will say it does look great.
I have eaten this since I was little. I am 35 now and still enjoy it. Try it with a spoonful of miracle whip on top. May sound weird but very tasty! I promise.
Pretty good base you can put in what ever you like ,vegatable,fruit ,nuts. I've tried zuccinni,pineapple,almonds. and it was very good .Used miracle whip for a topping on the side
I've been hunting for this recipe for a while, an elderly friend used to bring something similar to potlucks. It is a little unusual but quite refreshing. I prefer it without the walnuts. It is also interesting to add tiny shrimp to it along with the cabbage and carrot. Sounds odd, but it's a pretty good salad.
My mom's variation added some crushed pineapple. You then add the pineapple juice to sotened cream cheese to make a creamy dressing for the salad. Delicious!
I logged online yesterday to find a recipe using cabbage (it's in season and super cheap so I have a ton of it). I chuckled when I saw this one, as its something I've been eating for years, but without all the extra stuff...I'd just eat the shredded cabbage and jello which I love. Last night I followed this recipe, adding the extra goodies, and loved it! Why eat just at holiday time? It's perfect for whenever!! Especially when it's in season!!
I love this! I've been making this for about 22 years now. I make it for all the holidays. And the family loves it. Now have 5 grandchildren and they want Nana's jello salad.
