  Categories: Dr. digit, Salads, Vegetables
       Yield: 1 Servings
     3/4 c  Sugar
       1 c  Water
     1/2 c  Vinegar
       2    Packs Knox gelatin
       1 ts Salt
     3/4 c  Chopped celery
     1/2 c  Chopped pecans
       2    Small jars chopped pimento
       1    Small (2") grated onion
       1    Large can asparagus spears
   Mix the sugar, water, and vinegar in a non-aluminum saucepan and
   bring to the boil. Remove from heat and let cool a bit. Dissolve the
   gelatin in 1/2 cup of cold water, and add the salt. Combine the
   gelatin mixture with the cooled sugar, vinegar, and water mix and
   pour into a medium-sized (about 8 x 11)  glass or stainless steel
   baking dish. Put into the refrigerator until the mixture has just
   started to congeal. Mix in the celery, pecans, pimento, and grated
   onion. Layer the asparagus horizontally on top and lightly press into
   the gelatin until the asparagus is just even with the surface.
   Refrigerate until firm.
    Serve with a poppyseed dressing if you wish.
