Tasty Tuesday - Cherry Cola Salad

This past weekend was HOT!  It was over 100 degrees in the sun and humid.  Perfect weather for a nice cool dessert, like this Cherry Cola Salad.

Cherry Cola Salad

 I don't know why it's called a salad.  I guess it's because of the cherries... like a fruit salad.  Regardless of it's name, it's very very cherry and very very easy to make.

Cherry Cola Salad

1 - 6oz pkg of cherry gelatin
1 1/2 cups of boiling water
1 1/2 cups of cola (1 can of cola)
1 can (21 ounces) of cherry pie filling
Whipped cream or topping (optional, unless you're me and then it's mandatory)

Dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water.  Add the cola. Watch it fizz!  Stir in the cherry pie filling.
Pour into an 8 inch square baking pan.  Put in the refrigerator until firm.
Cut into 8 or 10, serve.  Add whipped cream or topping.


Cherry Cola Salad
Yes, this is my piece... lots of whipped cream.
You can also make a diet version of this.  Use sugar free gelatin, diet cola and lite pie filling and lite topping.
