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 vegetable salad is served in the middle of the White Mountain Ring (gelatin mold)

His feast does not appear on the General Roman Calendar, but is mentioned in the Roman Martyrology for August 30.


Cook 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen mixed vegetables; drain and cool. Combine vegetable oil, vinegar, garlic salt, dash Tabasco, and paprika. Beat with a rotary egg beater. Pour over vegetables; toss to mix; chill.
