Old School Pineapple Salad

 

Pineapple Salad , a classic old school recipe. It’s such a simple recipe and quite tasty! This salad follows the same basic concept of Southern Pear Salad.

I remember the pear version being served more often, but on occasion, the pineapple version made it’s appearance on the table.

Back in the day, as they say, mayonnaise was often used as a simple salad dressing. Of course that was before we had a gazillion options for salad dressings as we do today.

The combination of flavors will surprise you at how good it taste if you’ve never had pineapple salad. If you’re not a fan of mayonnaise, you could substitute cottage cheese instead.

I had one reader comment that pineapple salad was still one of their mother’s favorites. So bring back these classic salads to the table soon. I’ll tell you how….
