I have made this recipe for years and it's a hit everytime I make it. It's so simple just throw together and it's done. I also add pineapple and a few nuts for crunch. It's also excellent with raspberry pie filling.

I scaled this recipe for 50 for my son's potluck at school. He loved it, maybe he didn't wan't to hurt my feelings because it was barely touched and he said only 3 people liked it. The only thing I did different was add some mandarin oranges cause there wasn't enough fruit. I thought it was gross and way too sweet.

I call this "Plop"! I add 1 can crushed pineapple and mini marshmallows to it. Everyone loves it!

I make this every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It never lasts long because everyone loves it! I always add a small amount of crushed pineapple and it gives it an even more interesting flavor! You will not be disappointed with this easy recipe!

My mother in law gave me a wonderful cherry salad recipe over 20 years ago. But she also added canned pineapple chunks to it. Just get a can of pineapple chunks in its naturally sweetened juice and pour off nearly all of the juice and just add the pineapple to the cherry salad. You don't want to add too much juice or else it will make the cherry salad too thin. It tastes even more delicious because it now has a bit of pineapple tart in it to offset the sweetness. YUM!

This was really good. I used a little less than 8 oz. of whipped topping. I thought there was a lot of cream and not enough fruit, so I added 2- 15 oz. cans drained mandarin oranges. It was rich but yummy. Thanks Jennifer!
