Cucumber Cream Salad

I saw this recipe in Good Housekeeping Cookbook ca 1963 that Bill rescued from somewhere. I couldn't reisist. We served it on Bill's Gigantic Lettuce, Rotisserie Chicken and Radish Salad with Chickpeas. It's kind of like wobbly dressing.

1 3 oz package of lemon gelatin (YES! respect the JELLO MOLD!)
1 t salt
1 C hot water
1-2 T vinegar
1 t grated onion (dry onion flakes or powder would be fine, this ain't haute cuisine)
1 C sour cream
1/4 C mayonnaise, plus garnish (I omitted on principle; Bill garnished with blue cheese dressing)
1 C drained, finely chopped cucumber
Salad greens

Early in day: Dissolve gelatin and salt in water. Add vinegar, onion. Refrigerate until syrupy, then beat in sour cream, mayonnaise and cucumbers. Pour into 6 individual molds. Refrigerate until firm. Unmold on salad greens; top with mayonnaise. Makes 6 servings.
