Peanut Prune Salad

Peanut Prune Salad

  • 12 cooked prunes (pitted prunes from a packet are fine!)
  • 1/3 cup of cottage cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of grated orange rind
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped peanuts
  • Salt to taste
  • Mayonnaise
  • Chill the prunes (if you're using fresh prunes, make sure they're pitted). Chilling makes them easier to work with
  • Combine the cottage cheese, orange rind, peanuts and salt
  • Moisten the mixture with mayonnaise and stuff it into the prunes
  • Serve on salad greens as an entree or party savory - easy!

Chris says: A Peanut Prune Salad is simple to make and really great to eat!

You can serve it either as a centrepiece dish in a summer salad or as a side dish.

For a side dish, just use reduced quantities of all the ingredients.

In hot weather, you can prepare this dish in advance of the meal and then pop it into the refrigerator to keep it chilled. But to prevent evaporation and dryness, make sure you cover the salad bowl with plastic wrap.
