Recipe: Cool Off With My Refreshing Cherry Cola Salad Supreme!
During the hottest days of summer is when I like to take advantage of serving chilled desserts like the recipe that I have for you today. This delicious dessert salad is bursting with canned cherries, crushed pineapple, chopped nuts, and mini-marshmallows to intensify the cherry-cola gelatin base before topping with a fluffy layer of cream cheese and whipped topping for a divine summer dessert.
Not only does this taste sensational, my recipe is also easy and requires a minimum of effort.
I do hope you will want to try it soon because I think it might become a favorite once you savor those flavors and textures. I just dare you to resist!
