"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 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!"
