CHEERY BING CHERRY SALAD

Marlene York Recipe

By Marlene York atlantam48

Many eons ago I worked for Rich's which became Davison's which eventually became Macy's. This is neither here nor there except we had a company potluck and one of my co-worker brought this salad.
I could'd stop dipping into it.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
I drain the pineapple and cherries and put juice and fruits in refrigerator so they are nice and chilled when it comes time to add them to gelatin.
2
In heat-resistent bowl, dissolve black cherry gelatin in boiling water. Add Knox gelatin which has been softened in 1/4 cup cold water. Stir to dissolve.
3
Add chilled pineapple-cherry juice and chilled pineapple and cherries. Stir to combine. Place in (I use an oblong) dish. Slightly thicken in refrigerator.
4
Mix mayonnaise, softened cream cheese and nuts until fully incorporated. Shape into balls and place into gelatin. Refrigerate until firm.
