PRETTY PEACH SALAD

4 fresh or canned (drained) peach halves
2/3 cup cottage cheese
2 tbsp toasted slivered almonds
2 tbsp drained and chopped maraschino cherries
4 tbsp flaked coconut
crisp salad greens for lining plate

In a medium bowl, mix the cottage cheese, almonds, and maraschino cherries until combined.  Arrange the peach halves, centers up, on a salad greens lined plate.  Divide the cottage cheese mixture evenly and fill the centers of the pears.  Sprinkle the coconut over the top. 

Makes a very pretty addition to a buffet table.

NOTE:  If using fresh peaches, dip in lemon juice or sprinkle with fruit fresh to keep them from turning dark.

Also, this same recipe works great using pears instead of peaches.
