Frozen Cherry Salad Recipe

Frozen Cherry Salad Recipe

Pretty slices of this refreshing salad are dotted with colorful cherries for a festive look. The flavor is pleasant and not overly sweet. Prepared in advance and frozen, it's a treat that fits into many different menus. I serve it throughout the year.  -Gail Sykora, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin

"I made this delicious salad or dessert last night and declare it a winner. We loved it. I was out of mandarin oranges so used pineapple instead. And, we didn't wait for it to freeze but ate it unfrozen. Delicious. We will have this again. I highly recommend this recipe."

"This is delicious; however, I never freeze it. I just whip it up and serve it refrigerated in a bowl. It is just as delicious and takes less time (no freezing required). Thank you for a great recipe."
