Pear or Pineapple Salad

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Bobtail

I grew up eating this simple fruit dish as a side to many meals. It is quick and easy to prepare and adds a light touch to any meal. The toppings are easily adjusted to your own personal tastes. I use mayo and have tried Miracle Whip, but did not care for the Miracle Whip (my personal preference). Servings depend on the pieces of fruit in the can. Hope you enjoy!

10 stars for the memories brought back with this wonderful simple salad. My Mom always used canned pear halves, but I used a really ripe fresh one, cubed. Forgot the cherry. :) Thanks, Bobtail for a lovely lunch with memories of my Mom.
