Sequin salad

1 package lime Jell-O
1 cup hot water
1 cup cold water
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
dash of pepper
2 to 3 teaspoons grated onion
1-1/4 cups very small pieces raw cauliflower
1/4 cup diced pimento

Dissolve Jell-O in hot water. Add cold water. Chill until slightly thickened. Meanwhile, mix vinegar, salt and pepper together in a small bowl; add onion, cauliflower and pimento. Let stand to blend.

When Jell-O is slightly thickened, fold in seasoned vegetables. Pour into individual molds. Chill until firm.

Unmold on crisp greens. Serve with mayonnaise or French dressing, if desired. Makes 4 or 5 servings.
