Easter Bunny Salad

When I was a young girl, my mom had a circa 1960-something Betty Crocker cook-book for kids that originally belonged to my sister. I glommed onto it once I decided I wanted to bake and create in the kitchen. This was one of the first things I made. Mom also made these pear bunnies for us sometimes and they never failed to make me smile.

Easy and simple, make pear bunnies for Easter and see if your kids aren’t begging for more.

Ingredients – leaf lettuce, a can of pear halves (or fresh pears, cut in half) cottage cheese, cranberries, sliced almonds and Red Hots. You are supposed to use raisins instead of cranberries, but since I hate raisins, my bunnies have bizarre red eyes.

Put leaf lettuce on a plate. You can use as many as you like.

Place pear half on lettuce, split side down.

Add a dollop of cottage cheese at the broad end of the pear for a tail.

Stick in sliced almonds for ears, cranberries for eyes and a Red Hot nose.
