"This was always a favorite when we went to my Grandma's house, it is easy and kids love it! We like lots of bananas in ours, so you may want to adjust this according to your own family's tastes."

1 (21 ounce) can
cherry pie filling
1 (15.25 ounce) can
fruit cocktail, drained
It doesn't get any easier than this! Try adding some of your own fruit to the Cherry Pie Filling Base--use whatever you have on hand--canned or fresh.
This is good if you need something in a hurry.
Great recipe! My husband and son both love this one. I use this one a lot when I'm short on time or need something simple to bring to a potluck. It's easy to keep the ingredients on hand in the pantry. Add a dollop of whipped topping to make a fast dessert.
Great recipe and super easy. I used the sugar free cherrie filling and also sugar free fruit cocktail and no one knew the difference. It has splenda as a substitute but no one noticed and will be making alot during the summer!
Easiest salad I have ever made! It is always a hit at potluck dinners as well. I now keep the ingredients on hand for a fast dessert. Sometimes I will use one larger can of cherry pie filling (or one with more cherries) with 2 cans of fruit cocktail.
I love this! I think it is especially good after sitting in the fridge for a couple of days. You cant mess this up.
absolutely delicious! everyone that tastes it wants the recipe...thanks for sharing!
