Old School Pineapple Salad

Please Share Y'all!

 

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….

Best Pineapple Cheese Mayonnaise Salad 

Ingredients

  • 1 Can of Pineapple Rings
  • Fresh Lettuce
  • Mayonnaise, preferably Duke’s 
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese
Customarily these salads would be assembled as individual servings. If you like you can assemble a platter for self service.
 
Lay a bed of lettuce on each plate.
 
Next, add two slices of pineapple per person.
 
Top the pineapple slices with a dollop of mayonnaise.
 
Finally, add a bit of  shredded cheddar cheese, just on top of the mayonnaise dollop.
