Orange Cup Salad - 1925

1 grapefruit
3 oranges
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup pineapple, cut in small pieces

1/4 cup powdered sugar

Peel grapefruit. Remove pulp separately from each section, discarding all the membrane. Cut in pieces. Cut oranges in halves and remove pulp, being careful to keep in as large pieces as possible. Save the skins for salad cups. Mix the fruit, add sugar and lemon juice. Chill. Serve in the orange skins with Fruit Salad Dressing and garnish with Maraschino cherries.

Fruit Salad Dressing:

1/2 teaspoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1/8 teaspoon paprika

1 egg yolk

2 Tablespoons vinegar

1 cup olive oil

1/2 cup whipped cream

Mix the mustard, salt, pepper and paprika. Add egg yolk and mix well. Add one tablespoon vinegar. Add the oil gradually, beating constantly with an egg beater or silver fork. As mixture thickens, add remainder of vinegar. Fold whipped cream in lightly.
