THANKSGIVING SIDES AND DESSERTS........CHERRY JELLO SALAD

We all know Cranberry Salad is the Queen of salads when it comes to the Thanksgiving Table.

It is just understood, even if you don't like it..it's understood. It's just part of the tradition.

Mark's mom makes the best Cranberry Salad ever.

One year I made it.

I used her recipe.

Something went wrong.

It wasn't like hers.

No one said anything.

Not even to say, "Do you want to bring it again next year?"

No one said that.

I didn't bring it.

But I started making something we like just as much or dare I say even better.

I started taking it to other holiday dinners.

Everyone liked it because as I said, there are a lot of people who don't like cranberry but they like cherry.

So in honor of my Grandma Money, I'm going to share her Cherry Jello Salad recipe.

Its  on all our holiday tables.

We really like it and it's so pretty and so simple.

The picture I'm sharing isn't mine but is had the jello and had the coke so I thought it would work well.

I've never made mine in a mold, I always use a pretty glass bowl but this mold is pretty, I might have to consider that this year.


Here's the recipe and this is another one you can make a few days ahead of time to cut back on the stress of the big day.

CHERRY JELLO SALAD

1/2 cup sugar
1 large can cherry pie filling
i large box of cherry jello
1 large can crushed pineapple, drained
6 oz. coke
1/2 cup water
nuts to taste, (optional)

Remove from heat and add all other ing.
Chill until set.

  1. Do you need a box of jello as well? Or does the pie filling and pineapple make the "jello" part?

    1. Oh My, yes, t does Deborah. Thank you so much for pointing that out. I know exactly how I missed putting it in. I remember typing it and thinking, no, that's in the wrong place, taking it out and then I must have promptly forgot to add it again. I'm so so sorry and so thankful for you pointing it out. Thanks again and I have corrected it. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
