French Fruit Salad

1 orange 1 banana 1/2 pound Malaga grapes

1 dozen walnuts Lettuce French dressing

Peel the oranges and cut the sections from the membrane with a sharp knife or a pair of shears. If the fruit is allowed to stand in cold water after peeling, the bitter white membrane will come off easily.

Peel the bananas and cut in quarter-inch slices. Remove the skins and seeds from the grapes. Break in small pieces, but do not chop, the walnut-meats. Mix these ingredients thoroughly and place on ice. When ready to serve, place or lettuce leaves and serve with French dressing.

Grapefruit Salad

Peel grapefruit and free the sections from all membrane and seeds. Cut sections in half, crosswise; lay on bed of lettuce leaves and serve with French dressing. Sprinkle with tarragon leaves or with mint if desired.

No. 1.

3 pears Lettuce leaves

French dressing Strips of pimiento

After paring the fruit, cut in eighths lengthwise and remove seeds. Arrange on lettuce leaves and serve with French dressing made from oil and lemon-juice. Garnish with strips of pimiento. The dressing will prevent discoloration if it is poured over the pears at once.

No. 2.

6 pears

6 stalks celery

Mayonnaise

Salt and pepper

1/2 cup broken walnut-meats and stoned olives, chopped Lettuce leaves

Select well-formed pears and cut off a bit of the broad end so that the pear will stand steadily on the plate. With a potato-ball cutter remove the center, leaving enough of the pear to make a thick cup. Cut the celery into dice, add broken walnut-meats and chopped olives and mix all together with mayonnaise, adding a pinch of salt and pepper. Fill the pear cups and serve on lettuce leaves.

Pear And Cherry Salad

6 halves of stewed pears, fresh or canned Lettuce leaves

36 white cherries Boiled dressing or mayonnaise

Place the half pears on crisp lettuce leaves. Stone the cherries and arrange them around the pears. Serve with preferred dressing.
