Directions

  1. Dissolve the strawberry gelatin in 1 cup of boiling water. Stir in the cherry pie filling, then spread the mixture into a 7x11 inch pan, and refrigerate until nearly set, about 45 minutes.
  2. Dissolve the lemon gelatin in 3/4 cup boiling water; stir in the lemon juice, and set aside. Mash the cream cheese in a separate bowl until soft, then stir in the mayonnaise. Pour the lemon gelatin into the cream cheese mixture and stir until smooth. Next, stir in the undrained pineapple. Finally, fold in the marshmallows and whipped cream. Spread the pineapple mixture over the chilled cherry layer, and sprinkle with chopped walnuts. Chill in the refrigerator until fully set, about 2 hours.

Wonderful recipe and delicious, more as a dessert than a salad for our family, but refreshing and delish. Made exactly as recipe stated. I used Cool Whip the second time I made it and it still turned out great.

I don'tknow what I missed, but I thought the top lemon layer was way too sour with the 1/4 cup pf lemon juice. If I make it again, I will not add the lemon juice. Some had reviewwed that it was very sweet, but I don't see how being that there was no sugar and had all that lemon juice. I just don't get it.

I made this for Easter with ham and scalloped potatoes. It was great! You could almost use it for a dessert though because it was very sweet. A very pretty spring salad/dessert.

I was a little skeptical with putting mayo in this, but it turned out amazing. My husband turned his nose up at this until he tried it and loved it. I substituted the whipping cream with cool whip and it still came out fantastic. I didn't have any problems with dish not setting even though lemon top was a little soupy when I first put into fridge. It came out perfect. I will definitely make again.

I was so happy to find this recipe. It sounded like a recipe that was brought to many holiday feast at my house when I was a child. The great aunt who brought it would never give anyone the recipe. Many of us tried to duplicate it but no luck. Then I found this, ran right out to buy the ingredients and stayed up till 1 am to make it. Joy of joy this was the recipe, call everyone I could think of in the family and passed it on. It has brought back many good memories of family and friends. Can't wait to present it on Thanksgiving. Someone else gets to bring it for Christimas. Good Times.
