Food Friday: Perfection Salad

Couldn't everyone use a little Perfection Salad?  One recipe for it, shown below, comes from the Klamath Falls Ward (LDS Church), Klamath Falls, Oregon from their cookbook Our Favorite Recipes (1959).

Community cookbooks often have other types of advice or recipes aside from things to cook.  Mock recipes like "How to Cook a Husband" offered advice in a lighthearted way.  Cookbooks also featured household tips and healing advice.  The front pages of Our Favorite Recipes provides some household tips that provide ideas to make life easier, not just how to clean your house.
