Sharing is caring!

I can’t believe I just typed Tuna Jell-o Pie. It’s time for another edition of “Throwback Thursday!” I really do mean to do these more than once a month, but I have a lot of other things to post. (In addition, I’m trying to build traffic, and while I get a few loyal followers, these are big on traffic…probably because I can’t really market “Tuna Jell-o Pie. haha).

Betty Crocker, I love you. I really do. But you may have reached a new low with this. Called Summer Salad Pie, they labeled it “pretty as can be” in their cookbook.

First of all, please visit the not one, but TWO, people who were brave enough to make this and try it. A round of applause, please, for: “Mid Century Menu” & “Jezebel.” They both snapped step-by-step pictures of the entire, horrible process.

I posted the vintage pictures. If you want to see current, horrible pictures of the actual creation, please visit the sites above. Trust me, worth the click. 
(No, they are not paying me to tell you to visit them!)

As always, visit the humor section to see more Insane Vintage Recipes and Sexist Vintage Ads. And drop by on normal days to find delicious, actually edible food!

First, the recipe itself provided by Betty Crocker.

Not only does it feature lemon-flavored Jell-o and Tuna salad, horrible enough on its own….
It also has tomato sauce. Yes, you read that right, tomato sauce.
And olives.

And more pictures…
