Victoria Salad

Similar to the "Raggedy Ann Salad" from a very old copy of  Betty Crocker's Cook Book for Boys and Girls.  (In honor of my grand niece, Victoria!) 

Body:  fresh or canned peach half
Arms and legs:  small celery sticks
Head:  half a hard cooked egg
Eyes, nose, shoes, buttons:  raisins
Mouth:  piece of a cherry or a red hot candy
Hair:  grated yellow cheese
Skirt:  ruffled lettuce leaf

The "skirt" is placed under the peach half.  The "buttons" are placed on the peach half "bodice."  You could use a red hot candy for the nose and the cherry slice for the mouth too.  For the head you place the yolk down so only the white shows for the face. You could use very finely grated/shredded carrot for the hair instead of the cheese.
