Pear salad isn’t a real salad in the sense that you might be thinking of. It’s just a classic Southern side dish that is super easy to make. Tastes great too.



1 can Pear Halves
3 teaspoons of Mayonnaise ( approximately)
3 teaspoons grated Cheddar Cheese
Maraschino Cherries, one for each pear half


Drain the juice from the pear halves. Discard the juice.
Grate the cheddar cheese if needed.
Place pear halves on a serving plate.
Add a small dollop of the mayonnaise to each pear half.
Sprinkle a small amount of cheese on top of the mayo.
Add a maraschino cherry to the top of the cheese and mayo.
Serve cold.


A great kid friendly recipe that can be made in just a couple of minutes.
