1 apple (whatever kind ya got!)
1 can pineapple chunks (fresh will do, I guess!)
1/3 cup raisins (or, these days, you may only have Craisins in your pantry! They work!)
1 banana (don't slice and add 'til you're ready to serve unless you like brown bananas!)
1/3 cup pecans or walnuts (optional, if you don't like nuts mixed in your food! Mama Bonnie did!)
Here's the Dressin':
2 TBSP Mayo (or Miracle Whip if ya' have it on hand)
Splash of the pineapple juice from the can
Mix together 'til smooth, and "dress" the salad with it.
Chill awhile and serve with the pie and the peas!
A perfect combo for your palate!
What? Why sure, Y'all can "Diva" up this recipe by addin' all kiinds of exotic fruit, like blueberries and raspberries and such, but the plain ole' Mama Bonnie recipe calls for the basics..... stuff she always had on hand....just in case company dropped by at supper time! Exotic for her was addin' those mini-marshmellows every now and then! Y'all ENJOY now, ya here!?
