How to Make Coke Salad


  1. Drain cherries and pineapple into a saucepan. Set aside the fruit. Bring juices to a boil and remove from heat.
  2. Add Jello and dissolve thoroughly in the hot liquid.
  3. Add Coca Cola slowly. Do not use diet soda. It will foam but that will mostly dissipate as it cools. Chill until it starts to thicken.
  4. Add all the fruit and the pecans and stir well. Pour into a mold or dish and chill until firmly set.
  5. This recipe is pretty in a crystal bowl. It will keep for about 4 days in the refrigerator.
