Peach Salad Halves

Gluten Free Living – 2015

Peach Salad Halves are scrumptious. I love this simple, easy and delicious fruit salad recipe. It has only four ingredients–canned peach halves, Miracle Whip, pepper and cheddar cheese. So easy, yet the savory flavors of the cheese with the sweetness of the peaches makes this lovely fruit salad recipe surprisingly good.

Back in the late 70s we had friends invite us over for dinner one night and she served Pear Salad Halves. I made that recipe regularly for years. Then one time I decided to try the recipe with canned peaches instead of pears. Wow. Using peaches turned out just as nicely as pears. This simple fruit salad is a great complement to any main dish meal, but goes especially well with pork or as a potluck side dish during the summer holiday season when BBQ ribs or chicken is on the menu.

The nice thing about this recipe is you can find canned peaches all year round. If you have peach trees (like I used to have) and you have enough of a harvest to can some of your peaches, this is a great way to use up homemade canned peaches. While you can use mayonnaise if you are averse to Miracle Whip, you will have to sprinkle the mayo with a pinch of sugar to accomplish the same flavor.

We had some friends from John’s office recently move into a new home in our new housing development. It had taken them over a year to get their house built as he was his own contractor. I offered to bring them a meal on moving day and asked them what they liked to eat. Angela said she wanted lasagna. So in addition to the main course I thought these little peaches would be refreshing and tasty. While I was at it, I also made some with Pears, and tossed in some Easy Garlic Parmesan Knots with Easy Marinara Sauce for dipping. I topped off the meal with Monster Cookies and threw in some Raspberry Lemon Streusel Muffins for breakfast the next day. They loved everything. Because I was making so many things, I liked the idea that this delicious salad could be made up in about 5 minutes time!

If you’re looking for the quickest and easiest side dish to make for the holidays, company dinners, or for family dinners, then give Peach Salad Halves a try. Be prepared to eat more than a couple. 🙂

    […] I used to make these pears a lot when we were first married. It’s been quite awhile since I’ve made them–I think because I just forgot about them. Then when I was working on my cookbook a couple of weeks ago, I ran across the recipe again and decided it would be a quick and easy salad to make for friends who were moving into our new neighborhood. I was looking for something quick and easy, and Pear Salad Halves surely pass that test! I also made a batch with peaches. […]
