Vintage Recipe: Icebox Veggie Salad

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 

This recipe for Icebox Veggie Salad was handwritten on both sides of an index card. It was found in an old large recipe file box. The age of the recipe card is unknown (the recipe card has ©1992 Vanderbilt so this was probably written down in the 1990s).

The original recipe has been scanned and is transcribed below. It can be printed for use in your own home kitchen. Enjoy!
