Cherry Gelatin Squares

"I like to take advantage of gelatin mixes and pie fillings to make colorful salads that can be prepared the day before you need them," remarks Chris Rentmeister from Ripon, Wisconsin. "These fruity squares are great for everyday suppers yet special enough for company."

    I've had this recipe for years. I substitute sugar-free cherry gelatin, lite cherry pie filling and Diet 7-Up. It's so good, no one even notices the substitutions!

    I make this often. To change things up, I sometimes switch to peach pie filling and either peach or orange jello.
