Reviews for Bunny Pear Salad
"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?"
"You could probably use a large marshmellow for the tail."
"Any suggestions for ears,instead of nuts?"
"Why not try crasins instead of raisins and cotttage cheese in place of whipped cream?"
"What a cute recipe to prepare with my granddaughter! But I intend to substitute bits of maraschino cherry for the rainsins or currants: bunny noses & eyes are pinkish red, not black!"
