Cabbage and Pepper Molded Salad

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. For an outdoor barbecue party, or just for the ease of having a salad made ahead, this recipe is perfect!

2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (2 tablespoons)
1/2 cup crystalline brown sugar
1 teaspoon fine sea salt (use truffle salt for a special taste!)
2 1/2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar, or white wine vinegar
zest and juice of 1 lemon (2 tablespoons)

1 1/2 cups finely shredded cabbage
1 cup chopped green pepper
1 cup chopped red or yellow pepper
1/4 cup chopped pimiento

lettuce leaves, etc. for garnish

In batter bowl, combine gelatin, sugar and salt. Add the boiling water, stirring until everything has dissolved. Add the vinegar, zest and juice. Cool until it begins to thicken. In meantime, prepare the vegetables. When gelatin mixture is cool and starting to thicken, add the vegetables. Pour into an 8 by 5 inch glass or ceramic loaf pan or a 10 inch glass or ceramic ring mold. Chill several hours or until firm. Unmold on a beautiful platter, garnish with lettuce and more vegetables, as desired.
