1 (16.5 ounce) can
pitted Bing cherries, drained, juice reserved
1 (12 fluid ounce) can
cola-flavored carbonated beverage
1 (6 ounce) package
black cherry flavored Jell-O® mix
1 (15.25 ounce) can
crushed pineapple, drained
I used sugar-free regular cherry jell-o because the store I shop at didn't have black cherry jell-o. I also used tart cherries & Cherry Coke & half the nuts the recipe calls for as others have suggested. I made it in my Tupperware jell-o mold & it turned perfect. Everyone loved it. I think I will experiment using cranberry jell-o for Thanksgiving & maybe try it with orange jell-o, Sprite & mandarin oranges in place of the cherries for a citrus salad.
My family did not much care for this one- had to really encourage them to taste it, and they are not picky. We all agreed to the nuts (even cut in half) were very overwhelming. I guess we have to keep shopping.
Really good. It's a nice gelatin mold for Thanksgiving or Christmas because it has a deep, dark reddish color. The cherries and pineapple make a tasty blend.
I knew my Mom had used this recipe several times to carry to potlucks, and it was always big success for her. I needed to fix a nice congealed salad for a large dinner at my church. This is the one I used. I scaled the recipe for 16 people, and used a 9x13 pan. I did as suggested in other reviews, and used less pecans. It turned out great!
This was super-easy. Even using sugar-free gelatin and diet cola, it tasted good. The gelatin seemed really firm to me though--is it really supposed to be a 6-oz box of gelatin?
This, with the addition of one package of cream cheese, coarsely chopped, has been a tradition at our Christmas table for many years. It's so good! And here I was thinking it was a secret family recipe! :)
This was very, very good. Following other reviewers suggestions, I chopped up the cherries. I also used a 3 oz pkg of Black Cherry Jello and a 3 oz pkg of Cherry, because that's all I had - it turned out well. I also omitted the nuts, because we don't care for them, and it was delicious! Thanks for the recipe!
I made it despite my... er.. better judgment. Good thing I don't listen to myself. Yum!
