If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Orange peanut salad

A hint of the tropics with a dash of Thai influence... Hubby saw this and thought it sounded a lot like the strange sort of concoction a kid makes when they're home alone from school. You be the judge.

I have to smile at the editorial text in italics next to the recipe that reads:
"You will probably never again use vinegar in dressings once you try the 'witching drop of lemon juice.' Practically all famous chefs have discarded vinegar because lemon juice gives a more exquisite flavor. Learn for yourself what these chefs have proved."
But the recipe calls for "French dressing" and lemon juice isn't listed at all. I have to chuckle.

This recipe is one of a set of gorgeously illustrated vintage Sunkist recipes I found in Grammy's recipe box preserved in nearly pristine condition. Feel free to download the image so you can print it out and use it in your kitchen.
