Pear Salad

My Granny King always had Pear Salad when we came for a visit.  When we began having the King family reunions, you could bet there would be Pear Salad there, too.  I am carrying on the tradition of making Pear Salad but I do make it different from my Mother.   The way that my Mother's recipe and mine differ is that my Mother always stirred the cheese and mayonnaise together.  My Mother likes to talk about how I like to get fancy with some of the ways that I prepare or do my presentation of dishes but I'll let you know that she has been known to sit a cherry on top of each of her Pears!  This is just a too simple recipe for such a good taste.

                                                          Pear Salad 

29 oz. can of Pear Halves, drained
Hellman's Real Mayonnaise
Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Place drained pears with open side facing up on a pretty plate.  Place 1 tsp. of mayonnaise on each of the pears.  Sprinkle cheese on top of the mayonnaise.  Cover and place in the refrigerator.

My favorite meat to serve the Pear Salad with is ham.

  1. I remember eating this the first time Merrell and I ate with you and Phil. I loved it then and still do! Every time I fix it I think of you and the lunch we shared at your house in Dothan! Another good memory!!!
