Apple Salad

The following recipe was transcribed ver batim from 

The Rains County Leader

Emory, Rains County, Texas

May 9, 1913

Apple salad is delicious and seasonable, too. You take large red apples and scoop out the inside, creating cups. These are put into cold water with a few drops of lemon juice until ready to be filled. The filling consists of the apple chopped with celery, a little grapefruit and mayonnaise dressing. On the top heap bits of walnut and maraschino cherries, and lay each cup on a lettuce leaf. This is a very dainty salad, put together at very little cost. Wafers and cheese are served with it.
