On the thirtieth of August we can honor the good St. Fiacre, patron saint of gardeners, with a recipe based on the fruits of the earth. This is a fancy gelatin mold, with a Vegetable salad in the center. His feast is no longer on the General Roman Calendar.

DIRECTIONS

Sprinkle gelatin on cold water to soften; dissolve over hot water. Cool slightly. Combine cheese and dressing; stir in gelatin, parsley, and next 6 ingredients; blend well. Fold in cream. Turn into 5-cup ring mold; chill until firm. Unmold on platter. Garnish with salad greens. Fill center with Vegetable Salad. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
