I have another recipe to share. It's the salad I had with yesterday's meal.
I've decided that until I can think of something random to talk about - or even something with substance - I'll just share some of my favorite recipes. I have quite a few.
With the casserole I had English Peas and Frozen Cherry Salad and rolls. Dessert was the Peanut Butter Pie.
So - the Frozen Cherry Salad is as good as a dessert - but if you serve it on a piece of lettuce and with the main meal - well - you've got a fruit salad "of sorts". That's the way it was introduced to me. It's very easy and folks love it.
FROZEN CHERRY SALAD
1 (21 OZ) can cherry pie filling
1 (15 oz) can crushed pineapple
1 (14 oz) can condensed milk
1 (12 oz) carton cool whip
2 Tblsp. lemon juice (optional)
Mix all - freeze in loaf pan - slice and garnish with pecans.
Here are my additional comments. I've never used the lemon juice, but it might be nice to cut through the "sweet". I might try that next time. Also, I prefer to mix in some chopped pecans - which I've done, but not lately - I have family members who don't like nuts. I also prefer to spoon it into paper lined muffin tins - and freeze. When it's frozen, remove paper & serve on pieces of lettuce - maybe a dollop of mayo just for looks. But a lot of folks don't like mayonnaise. Remember to take out a few minutes prior to serving, so it won't be so frozen. Needs to be soft, but firm - with some frozen remaining.
This is very good and very easy - Open cans, pour in bowl, stir and freeze. Yummy.
