1950s Picture Salad:  Peach and Cottage Cheese created by lazyme

Way back when, salads that were as pretty as a picture were quite the thing. Here is a salad that was very popular at the time. I have also included other popular picture salads of the period.

5mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 4 canned peach halves, drained
  • 2 cups cottage cheese with chives
  • 4 lettuce cups

directions

  • Put a lettuce cup on each salad plate. This is a leaf of lettuce that is curled to form a cup-like shape.
  • Place one peach half in each cup.
  • Top with about 1/2 cup cottage cheese mixed with chives.
  • NOTE: Other Picture Salads: All are to be seved on cups of salad greens.
  • Pineapple Chunks 'n' Cherries: Arrange these two in lettuce cups. If using fresh cherries, it is nice to pit them.
  • Apricot 'n' Cream Cheese: Use drained apricot halves, cut side up. Top with softened cream cheese and chopped dates.
  • Pineapple-Banana Nut: Plae fluted sliced bananas (which have been dipped in pineapple syrup) on rained pineapple slices. Sprinkle with salted peanuts.
  • Molded fruit Cocktail: Fold well-drained fruit cocktail into slightly thickened fruit jello, using the syrup for part of the liquid used to make the jello.
  • Blushing Pear: Put 2 pear halves together with softened cream cheese. Sprinkle paprika on one side to make a blush. Top with cream cheese green pepper, and a water cress stem.

    Yum! This took me back to my childhood - my Mom used to make this often. I used sliced peaches and really enjoyed this salad. Thanks for sharing. Made for Cookbook Tag.
