I remember this being served at buffet dinners at neighbor's homes, but my mother never made it. It was delicious!

Calico Slaw

2 pkg. lemon Jello                                    1/4 cup diced pimentos
2 cup tomato juice (hot)                           1/4 cup diced green peppers
1/4 cup tomato juice (cold)                      1/4 cup diced celery
1 lemon juice and the zest                      3 cup shredded cabbage
1tsp onion salt                                          1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup mayonnaise

Pour into ice cubes tray, chill until firm around the edges and still soft in center. Turn into a bowl and beat with mixer until fluffy and smooth. Fold in vegetables. Turn into 2 qt. mold, chill until set.
