The Other Recipe

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.

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.
