White Rabbit Salad aka “Bunny Salad“
My friend Jenni grew up in the midwest. Since knowing her, I’ve been introduced to so many yummy recipes that quickly became family favorites since we met 8 years ago. Amazing what some miles do for the typical foods eaten at gatherings! Anyway, one of the recipes that I adore most is White Rabbit Salad, also known as Bunny Salad, often made around Easter and Spring but delicious anytime, and so good for you. Serve this bunny salad as an Easter side dish or a light, refreshing treat any old time.
Lots of healthy mix ins and really, if you call it a fun name like Bunny Salad? My kids gobble it up. It’s the little things! If you love fun Easter dishes- try the Carrot Crescents to go with this salad for a festive lunch! We also love fun surprise desserts and these Easter cupcakes are no exception.

Really, an interesting name of this salad. I like it as it is easy to make.
One quick question, the recipe calls for lemon juice, but that looks like key lime juice in the pic? Did you use lemon or key lime? Just wondering as it may slightly affect flavor. I love both lemon & lime!
Ashley- Jenni said there was lime in pic but she does normally use lemon. She said its great either way.
Um, it looks yummy…and I am glad there are no bunnies in it…but why is it called Bunny Salad? Am I missing something?

Very cute! I need to try this!
I had to click through from your pin on Pinterest just to make sure this recipe didn’t have bunnies in it! Looks good! ….and I’m glad it doesn’t have bunnies 🙂
LOL CHrysa! I bet they would EAT it. But I’d never make a salad with a bunny. Maybe a bunny peep salad. 🙂

Minus the nuts and I’m in for this. Family is just not into anything with nuts in it but this looks great
Looks good! I thought this was going to be how to make the bunny salads. Completely different than I was expecting!

This sounds very interesting, but i’m always up for trying new things. Would never think to add stuff like that to cottage cheese. probably would give this a try at home before I make it for the holidays. Thanks for sharing.
YUM!! I love the other add ins too – I would load it up! 🙂
