Thanks for submitting this recipe, Debi! We had an incredibly delicious cherry salad at a church dinner (following a funeral), loved it, but I wasn't able to get the recipe. Thanks to you, I"ve got it now!

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments. I'm glad that you all are enjoying this recipe! I love your suggestions on variations and will try them myself! Pistachios sound like a great addition instead of pecans and I really must try putting this in a graham pie shell and freezing it! I wish you all a wonderful holiday filled with loving family, great friends and good food!
