This "salad" is yummy enough to be dessert. The last time I had it was when I was six years old and it was at my mother's friend's house. I've craved it ever since. Fortunately I was able to find the recipe here at All Recipes. Thanks Marilyn! I made it without cream cheese and it turned out great. I used white marshmallows and poured a little of the cherry juice in to make it pink. My husband loves it with pecans. It is very quick and easy to put togther but it has to freeze for many hours--so plan ahead.
This is a wonderful holiday recipe with the red and green cherries in a snowy white base! My mother served it every Christmas when I was a child and the recipe was lost along with her until I found it here. I suggest only a few changes. I add about teaspoon of almond extract and I use sliced almonds instead of pecans. Also I use the WHITE rather than the pastel mix of mini-marshmallows. I freeze the mixture in muffin tins. It s so easy to pop out individual servings onto a salad plate with lettuce leaf or two garnish with a dollop of mayo topped with a cherry. Very pretty and delicious. Best of all you can/must make ahead relieves some of the last minute pressure.
Yes! I've been looking for this recipe! I used to make it 15 years ago. I'm making it for Thanksgiving but using low fat cream cheese and lo fat Miracle Whip. It needs to be a little "lighter" for our tastes.
Just like I remember. My mom used to make this for holiday meals and she was the only one who "loved it". Now I do too. I did forget to put in the marshmallows after I made my hubby search several stores for them. I will have to try again and remember the marshmallows although it was excellent without.
My mom use to make this recipe when i was young. Mom use to use Miracle whip instead of mayonnaise. Next time I will use miracle whip instead of mayonnaise I put less mayonnaise it still over power on the mayonnaise.
