This refreshing concoction will spark up any event! To make her dish extra festive, Karen Dougherty of Freeport, Illinois arranges cherries and oranges on top in the shapes of flowers. "The salad can also be made with orange juice concentrate instead of lemonade, if you like," adds Karen.

"Was good, but far to sweet. Made it with orange juice concentrate, and and graham cracker crust, found it much to be much to sweet. Will try sugar free whipped topping next time with lemonade concentrate to try and cut some of the sweetness."

"In the old days we used to make this as a dessert with a graham cracker crust and we'd freeze it (but no oranges or cherries.) It was a very popular dessert in the late 1970's."
