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.
