What a big day on the blog, it’s St Patricks Day, I just launched a huge Healthy Juicer Giveaway over on my Facebook page AND it’s my 300th post!!
I was lucky enough to grow up across the street from my wonderful grandparents and my Meme taught me so much about the love that goes into cooking!
Today I re-created her Cherry Coke Salad, a southern favorite that we served at most (if not all) holidays when I was growing up!
Sweet, tart and oh-so-delicious, this jello salad is perfect for BBQ’s or family dinners!
- 21 oz can pie cherries
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 6 oz box cherry jello powder
- 1 cup coca-cola
- 20 oz can crushed pineapple
Begin by boiling the cherries, sugar and water on the stove.
Next, pour the mixture over the jello powder.
Allow to cool on the counter, then add the coca-cola and pineapple.
Mix together then place in the refrigerator to set, 6-8 hours.
Simple and scrumptious, two of my favorite things!
