“Pears on Lettuce”


Description from KarenDe-Challenge Chick: Crazy as it sounds: make a bed of lettuce leaves. Top with canned pears (preferably home canned, of course), then add Miracle Whip, grated cheddar cheese, and top with a maraschino cherry. Yumm!

    Well, as strange as this mixture sounds, if it is as scrumptious as this pick, it must be delicious!! :-)

    Thanks! It’s a simple homey favorite, and since I am currently procrastinating (again) on packing boxes for this weekend’s move home to Montana, it seemed like the perfect pick. :)

    Ah, you’re moving up closer to me… I probably read somewhere where you currently live but I don’t remember. Where are you moving from, if you don’t mind my asking?

    I’m on my way out of Pennsylvania – and I can’t wait to see the back of Happy Valley! :P Seriously, though, I will miss my volunteering friends, but most of my Penn State compatriots have long since moved on. Montana is home, and 10 years was too long away from it.

    I’ve always thought that Montana would be a good state to live in, even though I’ve never been. So many people from here go shopping in Montana and I have heard good things about it! :-D

    Karen, this is a great pick and super arrangement for your pear salad! I’ll keep you in my prayers for a safe trip while you’re moving. Hope things go well and you get settled in quickly so we can see you back here soon! :D

    The dish you mentioned used to appear on the school cafeteria tray on a regular basis when I was in elementary in the ’60′s. EXACTLY as you describe it!!!!!!

    Great pick, BTW!
