Salad: Cucumber Ring Supreme

1 3-ounce package lemon-flavored gelatin

1 cup boiling water

3/4 cup cold water

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 cucumber, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons sugar

1 envelope unflavored gelatin

3/4 teaspoon salt 3/a cup water

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, cubed and softened

4 cucumbers

1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing

1/4cup snipped parsley

3 tablespoons finely chopped onion

Dissolve lemon-flavored gelatin in boiling water; add the 3/4 cup cold water and 3 tablespoons lemon juice. Pour into a deep 6 1/2-cup ring mold. Chill till partially set. Overlap the thinly sliced cucumber atop gelatin mixture in mold; press into gelatin. Chill till almost firm.

Meanwhile, in saucepan mix the sugar, unflavored gelatin, and salt. Add the 3/4 cup water; stir over low heat till gelatin and sugar dissolve. Stir in the 2 tablespoons lemon juice. With rotary beater gradually beat hot gelatin mixture into softened cream cheese till mixture is smooth.

Peel and halve the 4 cucumbers lengthwise; scrape out seeds. Grind, using fine blade or finely shred cucumbers. Drain; measure about 1 1/2 cups. Stir ground or shredded cucumber, mayonnaise, parsley, and onion into cream cheese mixture. Pour over almost firm gelatin in mold. Chill till firm. Unmold onto lettuce-lined plate; garnish with cherry tomatoes, if desired. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
