Don't tell me I am the only one that has never heard of Coke and Cherry Jell-O Salad. This is another recipe from the newspaper and I am curious to know how it is. Has anyone had this salad before? Sure would like to have you post if you have tasted this salad.

1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
1 can Bing cherries, drained
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 small boxes cherry Jell-O
2 cups boiling water
1 (12 ounce) can cold Coca-Cola
Mix together pineapple, cherries, and pecans and spread mixture actoss bottom of 9-by-13- inch pan.
Dissolve Jell-O in boiling water. Stirring gently, pour Coke into Jell-O
Pour Jell-O mixture over fruit mixture and chill until firm.
Makes 10 to 12 servings.

I have had this made with cherry coke and itis really good, even though I am not usually one for Jello salads. My sister-in-law mad it for a buffet dinner and it was a big hit!

Thanks for letting me know. I might give it a try for a family get together or maybe a light salad to serve with a light meal. Thanks for posting!
