Candle Salad

  • couple of lettuce leaves, washed and dried
  • 1 pineapple ring, from a can
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 2 spoonfuls of cottage cheese
  • ½ teaspoon mayonnaise
  • 1 maraschino cherry

Place lettuce leaves decoratively on a small plate and set pineapple ring in the middle. Cut one end off the banana and place cut-side down in the hole of the pineapple. Spoon a mound of cottage cheese along the base of each side of the banana to help hold it upright. Carefully top the banana with small dollop of mayonnaise, which will act as glue for the cherry, and place the maraschino cherry atop. Enjoy!
This recipe is from the 1950’s.  They had such a nice name for this, and yet, I think it may work for a bachlorette party.
