My kids got a chuckle this Christmas when I presented them with these "Candlelight Salads." After we got over the embarrassment of what they looked like (tee hee) we enjoyed eating them.
It's a simple salad with a lettuce leaf or two, a pineapple slice, half a banana and a cherry on top held in place with a toothpick and mayonnaise. My grandmother used to make them every Christmas.
She also made a "bunny salad" with a half pear, raisin eyes, almond ears and mayonnaise tale. Too cute.
I loved these as a kid and enjoy them even now. How about some heart-shaped pancakes for breakfast or a star-shaped grilled cheese sandwich for lunch?
