"Salad" meant something different back in the day.

Lizzy O'Leary unearthed a vintage cookbook called "Atlanta Natives' Favorite Recipes" that contained some bizarre "salad" recipes. It was published in 1975 when setting food in gelatin was as the height of its popularity.

She shared her findings on Twitter in a thread that went viral.
