pear salad pinnable

OK I’m going really old school on you today friends. The other day I shared my mom’s recipe for deviled eggs and today I’m sharing another of our family’s traditional Thanksgiving and Christmas sides – pear salad.

Now, I’m not going to lie here. This is an old school recipe, and to a lot of people it sounds really weird or unappetizing, but I promise, it’s actually quite tasty.

It’s also the first recipe that my mother turned over entirely to me. I remember feeling so special and like it was such a huge responsibility, when in fact, it’s really simple to make and even your kids could put it together.

Pear Salad –


Canned pear halves
Miracle Whip
Maraschino cherries
Shredded cheddar cheese

To put the “salad” together, drain the pears and lay the halves flat side up on a serving dish. Place a small dollop of Miracle Whip in the hole where the pit was. Drop on a cherry and top with the shredded cheddar.
