Look what YOU can do with cling peaches and Miracle Whip!

With such perfect partners in the pantry, you can make any number of tempting salad combinations. Perhaps you prefer a sweet-tooth salad, such as the popular make-ahead version you see above. Or… how about the colorful “Spur-of-the-Moment” Fruit Plate opposite, assembled from your fruit bowl or refrigerator. Canned cling peaches are just sweet enough… plump and golden… a bright and beautiful beginning for any salad!

1/4 cup chopped nuts
