Salad Recipes from Amana Cookbook

Just as I promised, I'm sharing some recipes out of the Amana cookbook from 1948 that I found in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  The cookbook was the first attempt at compiling very old recipes of the Amana Society in east central Iowa.  The Amana Society was a religious community comprised of  7  villages, and was founded in 1714.  These wonderful old  recipes might have been lost through time if not for the efforts of  the Ladies Auxiliary of the Homestead Welfare Club of Homestead, Iowa.  Here are two cold summer salads from the book!

Tomaten Salat
(Tomato Salad)

6 tomatoes, skinned and quartered
1 large onion, cut in rings
2 TBSP sugar
2 TBSP vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
dash of pepper
Mix in order given and chill.

Sellerie Salat
(Celery Salad)

1 bunch celery, sliced
water to cook
1/2 tsp salt
2 TBSP vinegar
dash of pepper
1/4 C cream

Cook celery until tender, drain and combine with remaining ingredients.  Chill and serve.
