Frozen Cheese Salad From A 1957 Cookbook!

Here's a fancy 1957 Frozen Cheese Salad from a church women's cookbook. Definitely not a Weight-Watcher item but looks delicious! I just love looking at all the older cookbooks and reading the recipes I've been collecting over the years. They really are a sign of those times. I'll be adding more recipes as time goes on. Hope you enjoy this one!


  1. Yummm, it sounds so good! I will have to try it, calories included! :-) I like that it is from the year I was born. As for your homework post, that is ohhh so true. How many times have my husband and I sat here while helping the kids with their homework or to study for a test, and groan with the comment, "I thought that we were done with all this homework nonsense"! As long as the kids are in school, so are the parents!! I for one will be glad when the last of them is out of school and I can put it all behind me. No wonder why I am getting so many gray hairs, school stress is giving them to me!! Debby

  2. Love the old recipes, Coralie! Keep 'em coming!


  3. I love those old church cookbooks! And you're right, those old recipes are definitely a sign of those times. Lots of fat, but oh so yummy!
    Have a great weekend!

  4. it sounds strange, but i bet it is delicious. that was back when women ate what they wanted and didn't feel guilty about it. or maybe they did....who knows. wish we could still have that same attitude today.
    now i'm hungry. yummy.
    take care...

  9. I'm catching up on your posts now that I'm back home and online! I won't be commenting on everything because I wouldn't have time to read it all if I did. However, I had to stop and comment on this one.

    I too love and collect old recipe books. I have so many that I would have to get a new bookcase if I bought anymore!!! It is so much fun to try the recipes out of these books.


  10. Hi Coralie, I have a similar recipe from a Kraft booklet we were all given in my high school Home Ec class in the mid-50s. Since it was from Kraft, they suggested Miracle Whip which, when mixed with whipped cream and sweetened, is just heavenly.

    The "tray" they talk about freezing it in is one of those aluminum ice cube trays without the cube section. After it's frozen, you set it in an inch or so of warm water for a minute to release it, then flip it over onto a bed of lettuce, and slice it. Looks lovely, and tastes even better!

    (I'm loving all of your 50s recipes!)
