Frosty Cherry Salad

Frosty Cherry Salad

I must be on a cherry kick because this is the second recipe in a row I’ve posted using maraschino cherries.  I just love them—in cookies and in salads!  This recipe that I have for you today is a fantastic frozen salad.  In fact, I would say that it is my favorite Jello salad of all time, and I plan to serve it with our Christmas dinner this year.  Aside from the cherries, the recipe also calls for a can of jellied cranberry sauce, but the cherry taste is definitely more noticeable than the cranberries.  There is also a very faint lemon taste to it which comes from the lemon rind in the whipped cream layer.

You will need to make this salad at least one day before you are planning to serve it to allow time for it to freeze.  I actually plan to make mine two days before Christmas because I like to spread out the prep work involved in cooking such a big meal.  Then a couple of hours before we eat, I will just transfer the salad to the refrigerator to allow it to thaw slightly.  I hope you enjoy it!  Before I sign off, let me just take this opportunity to wish  all of my readers a merry Christmas.  I’ll be back just before New Year’s with a great recipe for Chicken Enchilada Soup.
