In a large pot, heat butter over medium heat until melted. Add marshmallows and salt; stir until completely melted. Stir in vanilla and green food coloring, then fold in the cereal. Transfer to the prepared pan. Use a second piece of wax paper to spread the cereal into the pan, gently pressing as you go, but not compacting it too much. Let cool.
