Bing Cherry Salad
Lorah Marie Hodges
Ingredients3 h 15 m servings 132 cals
- Drain the pineapple juice and cherry water into a 2-cup measuring cup. Pour enough color to make 2 cups; discard the remaining soda. Pour the cola mixture into a saucepan.
- Bring the cola mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from heat, then stir in the pineapple, cherries, cream cheese, and cherry gelatin until gelatin dissolves, about 5 minutes. Pour mixture into a mold or glass baking dish. Refrigerate until set, about 3 hours.
- Cook's Notes
- There are several variations to this in my family. You can add pecans, you can add all of the pineapple instead of just half. You can add the whole can of soda. You can also let the mixture cool a bit before adding the cream cheese so that it doesn't melt.
- My sister and I like to make a double batch so we have it to snack on for the next few days.
