My mom’s use of red and green cherries to decorate dishes at Christmastime inspired me to create my holiday gelatin mold. It’s cool, creamy and fun to serve guests.

"I made this last night and I have second thoughts about serving it for Christmas dinner. I researched too late but found this recipe on Cooks.com and it called for 1 Tbs of mayonnaise not 1/2 cup. I'm afraid this salad is ruined. Taste of Home should double check their recipes before printing them in their cookbooks!"
