Hamburger Salad Sandwiches

When I saw this recipe on an old time recipe board I had to read through it a couple different times. I couldn't decide if you really, truly, served it cold. Ground beef and 'cold' just don't go together well in my mind.

It's a recipe that I know is at least 40 years old and I suspect even older, as I would hedge a bet I'd find similar in some of my old church cookbooks from the 30's and 40's. After I sat and read the recipe a little more I realized that I had seen this before and I dug deep in my memory to see where it might have been. After awhile it occured to me that my Grandma H used to make this! I never ate it, because, as a kid, this was just scarry. LOL. But sure enough, my Grandma H served this on buns.

As an adult I don't find the thought of it scarry anymore and I've added it so others can enjoy as well.
