This tempting gelatin salad has a big cherry flavor and a fun zing from the cola. My two small children are always happy to see this salad on the table. We think it tastes great with or without the whipped topping.

"My family loves Cherry Cola salad - it is simple to make, delicious, and its glistening ruby red color is just lovely! A real winner - I will be making it again tonight, much to the delight of my husband and two grown sons. Thanks for a great recipe - a real keeper!"

"Due to diet concerns I made this with sugar free black cherry gelatin, no sugar added cherry pie filling, and diet cola. It was excellent!"
