Pineapple-Cheese Salad

Recipe by JanieTeachGal

I have no idea of the origin of this recipe. I know that my sister and I are the fourth generation (at least) to make this recipe. I warn you: it is an acquired taste, but it goes great with anything. To me, when I think of northern central Louisiana cuisine/southern food, this is the "salad" I think of.

I have been eating this since I was a kid, minus the lettuce. Also good made with canned pears. A favorite childhood recipe for me!
