This is an old clipping from my late mom's "clippings box."  It is from the local newspaper in the town where I grew up.  I am not sure how old it is but we do have a clue.  There is a local pharmacy ad on back of the recipe with a phone number that begins BR-5-....  Now that does take you back, doesn't it?  Most of you younger reader's never had a phone number like that!

2 cans whole kernel white corn
1 medium green pepper*
1 medium onion
3 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
tomato wedges
pimento strips

Drain 2 cans of whole kernel white corn.  Slice green pepper and onion in thin slices, mix with corn.  Cover and let stand in refrigerator for about an hour.  Before serving, toss with oil and vinegar, and season to taste.  Garnish with tomato wedges and pimento strips.

*A green pepper meant a bell pepper.

I too always look on the back of any old newspaper recipes I come across. I think it is so interesting to see the prices. I like to try to guess the date if it is not on the paper.
