This is a wonderful holiday recipe – with the red and green cherries in a snowy white base! My mother served it every Christmas when I was a child and the recipe was lost along with her until I found it here. I suggest only a few changes. I add about ¼ teaspoon of almond extract and I use sliced almonds instead of pecans. Also, I use the WHITE rather than the pastel mix of mini-marshmallows. I freeze the mixture in muffin tins. It’s so easy to pop out individual servings onto a salad plate with lettuce leaf or two, garnish with a dollop of mayo topped with a cherry. Very pretty and delicious. Best of all, you can/must make ahead – relieves some of the “last minute” pressure.
