    Summerwine's Note:

    Individual servings of a very colorful starter or attractive salad on the side which can be made ahead of time. Super easy for a beginner cook and good for you too! Before you think, eeks, mayonnaise, give it a try, it works really well. Of course you could omit the mayonnaise if you prefer. When we were kids my mom used to make this for us for lunch or for salad at dinner and we all loved it! :)

      My Grandmother used to make this for us but she used a little of the juice from the pineapple can to thin the mayo so you could pour it over the salad and then sprinkled chopped walnuts on top! Delicious! We also had peaches and cottage cheese and pears and cottage cheese sometimes, too.

      This salad was made by my mom, then me and believe me I'm no spring chicken. The great-grandaughter says it is her "favortist". The only difference is we don't use the mayo, just another dollop of cottage cheese. Will be trying the mayo. It is a lovely salad and so very easy to make. So glad you posted it.

      I love this. I made this back in the 70'S, except instead of cottage cheese I used grated Velveeta cheese.
