“A fun treat for children of all ages! :-) From the Western chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947. Chilling time not included in preparation time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve gelatin in warm water.
  2. Pour into an 8" x 8" pan and chill until firm: shred with tines of a fork or force through a ricer to resemble grass.
  3. For each salad, fill a pear half with cottage cheese mixed with mayonnaise and chopped almonds.
  4. Place a piece of leaf lettuce on a chilled plate and top with gelatin "grass"; place pear half rounded side up on the gelatin.
  5. Make bunny's ears, mouth and tail from almonds.
  6. Make eyes by dipping the tip of a knife into paprika then gently into pear where you'd like the eyes to be.
  7. If you wish to garnish, form a "carrot" from yellow cheese or cheese salad with a sprig of parsley for "carrot greens".
  8. Serve with mayonnaise.
