Coca-Cola Salad

(From River Road Recipe: The Textbook of Louisiana Cuisine)


1 package raspberry gelatin

1 package cherry gelatin

1 can seedless white cherries

1 large can crushed pineapple

1 cup pecans

1 8-ounce package cream cheese (frozen)

2 8-ounce Coca-Colas (partially frozen)


Dissolve gelatin in juices (heated) from cherries and pineapple. Then add cokes, cherries, pineapple and nuts and pour into molds. Grate frozen cream cheese over top of molds (gives the appearance of snow). Place in refrigerator to congeal. The "frozen" cokes make congealing faster.

Serves 10
