Patricia Yost, of Raytown, Missouri, wrote to request a recipe for Cherry Coke salad. She says a can of soda pop was added to cherry pie filling.

Several versions came to us in response to Patricia’s request. Some used cherry pie filling, others sour cherries. This one, from Joyce Conrad of Ashley, Indiana, uses canned Bing cherries.

Cherry Coke Salad With Bing Cherries Recipe

1 can (20 ounces) Bing cherries, drained, reserve juice
1 large box cherry gelatin
1 can (12 ounces) Coca-Cola
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained, reserve juice
1 large package cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup chopped pecans

In saucepan, heat cherry juice; add gelatin. When gelatin is dissolved, remove from heat; add Coca-Cola and pineapple juice. Refrigerate mixture.

Chop cream cheese into small pieces. When gelatin begins to set, add cream cheese pieces and stir into gelatin. Add cherries, crushed pineapple and pecans. Refrigerate until set.
