ADORABLE EASTER BUNNY SALAD
This Easter Bunny Salad is a family tradition here in the Creative Cynchronicity home! It has graced our Easter table for many many years and looks positively adorable sitting at each person’s place. It never fails to attract some “oh how cute” comments as soon as everyone spots it.
Not only is it well suited for the holiday but really, it can add some fun to any spring meal. I’ve even been known to send it in a container for my daughter’s school lunch the last day before Easter break!
It is SO simple to make – takes mere minutes to assemble enough for the whole family. Perhaps best of all, you can vary the ingredients to suit your family’s preferences AND you can make it healthier or sweeter depending on what you’d like. Either way, it’s an adorable treat and your family is sure to love it.
HOW TO MAKE EASTER BUNNY SALAD
Pear halves (1 per salad), salad greens of your choice, baby carrots (optional – just adds to the color and charm of the dish – you could also use jelly beans or mini Easter egg candies if you prefer), something for the tail (I used cottage cheese but other options include yogurt, marshmallow fluff, a mini marshmallow, or a dab of mayonnaise or white salad dressing), something for the eyes (I used raisins but chocolate chips work too – I find the raisins “adhere” better to the pear without having to use toothpicks or a dab of frosting or something like that as your glue), something for the nose (I used a piece of a gummy candy but raisins, dried cranberries or cherries, or a cinnamon heart all work), something for the ears (I used whole almonds but some other types of nuts will work as will pumpkin seeds). Note: I’ve not been able to find anything that works well for the whiskers and is the right size. Let me know in the comments if you figure out anything!
Ok, so the instructions are so easy that really, you just look at the photos and assemble using them as a guide. That’s it! By the way, I have toyed with the idea of adding something under the pear half since there’s a natural concave area there. I suppose if you like a traditional pear salad, you could pop a little mayo under there to be discovered when your family cuts into the pear. I’m sure there are other good options too. I’m still brainstorming that one! If you have any ideas, add them to the comments please!
