CREAMY RICE MOLDED SALAD

This is an old recipe I found in my mother-in-law's things after she went to the nursing home.

2 envelopes (2 tbsp) unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
3 1/2 cups chicken broth
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp lemon juice

Soften gelatin in the water. Heat broth to boiling; add the softened gelatin and stir until dissolved. Add the mayonnaise and lemon juice; beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Chill mixture until partially set then whip until light and fluffy. Fold in the following ingredients:

1 cup whipping cream, whipped
2 1/2 cups cooked rice
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup sliced green onions

Pour the mixture into an 8 1/2 cup ring mold that has been very lightly oiled. Chill until firm.

Yield: 10 to 12 servings.
