My Grams used to make this often when I was growing up. I just loved it and still do! Hubby requests this a lot and so does the picky daughter! It's so simple, yet tastes so good. Especially on hot summer evenings.

This one of my most hated recipes from childhood. My mother made this every freakin' week and it was terrible.

Thanks for posting this very simple, but wonderful recipe. We ate this years ago and as children loved it. At times we used sliced pineapple instead of pear. Granny would serve it on a piece of lettuce. I'm going to start eating this again, but cut back a little on the mayo. Thanks again for the reminder.
