Food Feedback: Jell-O with fruit and mayo, elegant?

Loved the pimento cheese article ["Masters Tournament known for its green jackets -- and simple sandwiches" by Mary Ann Anderson, Sunday Magazine, March 30]. Did you know that Shop 'n Save carries a pimento spread from Ballard's Farm in West Virginia? It is very good and saves time.

That article brought back memories of special luncheons or teas in the 1940s and '50's. Little triangular sandwiches with the crusts removed, filled with ham, tuna or egg salad. A Jell-O salad with fruit and frosted with mayonnaise. Lemon sherbet and ice box cookies for dessert. Now THAT was elegant!

At least we thought it was!
