Sunbonnet Baby Salad

Yield: 10 servings



  1. Arrange the halves of canned pears, round side up, on lettuce leaves, which curl closely about the pear and have the effect of a hood.
  2. Place cloves in the pear for eyes, blanched almonds for ears, and slip thin slices of canned pimento into cuts made for nose and mouth.
  3. The expressions may be varied.
  4. Put salad dressing around the outside of the pear to represent hair and arrange a bow of red pimento under the chin of the sunbonnet baby.
  5. These salads are very effective and easy to make.
