My Mom made similar bunnies for us in the 50's! The only difference was she used cottage cheese for the tail and a carrot strip for the baby carrot. Oh...and on iceberg lettuce. That's the only lettuce we knew. :-)
I've been looking for an Easter treat my daughter could make on her own, this is great.. And it's also good for you!
I think that the bunny looks more like an oversize mouse - but I guess that's probably just me. Cute anyhow!
I made the bunny salad last night. They turned out so CUTE! I put a scoop of cottage cheese on top of the lettuce and under the pear. I think the whipped cream tail turned out cute, as did the eyes and ears! I also added a couple sliced of cucumber cut into quarters. Thanks!
Hiw about small stems of celery? or snipped marshmallows on toothpicks?
