Cathy is featuring a traditional recipe meme.
This a recipe that my mom always served at Christmas time.
I used it for years after I married then replaced it with other salads and would then go back to it.
My grandchildren now count on it.
Frozen Fruit Salad
Cream together until well blended:
8 ounces cream cheese
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon salt
Whip and blend into the cheese misture
1 cup whipping cream
Fold in: 1 tbp. lemon juice
1/3 cup well-drained marachino cherries chopped
1 cup well drained crushed pineapple
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
Pour the mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze.
Arrange salads 5 to 10 minutes in advance of serving to allow the salad to thaw sufficiently for convenient eating.
Decorate the top with cherries or nuts.
Garnish with water cress or other greens
This recipe lives in the pages of my mother's
The Household Searchlight Recipe Book, that is now mine.
She received this as a gift in 1936.
