Black Cherry Salad

Ok, I have to say something here…my older sister HATES this recipe. Cringes if you even mention black cherry Jell-o. I on the other hand adore this and would look forward to having it when we would go to my great-grandmother’s house. Really, really, really love this salad.

I don’t add the extra sugar and am likely to use cheddar in place of the American cheese.

Black Cherry Salad

1 3 oz. pkg. black cherry gelatin
1/3 c sugar
1 c water
1 c shredded American cheese
1 8 1/2 oz. can crushed pineapple
1 c whipped cream

Mix gelatin and sugar and water, cook until gelatin and sugar dissolve. Cool and add cheese and pineapple. Chill until partially set. Add whipped cream and chill until firm. Serves 6.


  1. While I hate agreeing with Betsy on anything, I have to agree with her now. This. Does. Not. Sound. Good.

  2. OMG…this is sooooo 1950s! If it had mayo in it, it would be perfect LOL.

  3. My granny used to throw some olives in, also. Why, I do not know!

  4. Olives? In black cherry? INTERESTING. I have trouble picturing this.

  5. Um…I’m with Denise on this one.
