Cherry Nut Mold

When I saw cans of sweet dark pitted cherries in the grocery, I had to make this oldie but goodie again.  You can use coke if desired, but it’s perfectly good with water for the cold liquid.  
Some folks call this a salad, we call it dessert!  Top it with some whipped cream for dessert or some mayonnaise or Miracle Whip if you want to pretend it’s a salad.  Any way you serve it, it’s still as good as ever.

Cherry Nut Mold
  1             can  black sweet cherries -- pitted
  1             bottle  Coca Cola -- (6 oz.) or cold water
  1             pkg.  cherry Jello
     1/2      cup  chopped pecans -- 2 ounces
Drain cherries; heat juice, measuring 1 cup, adding water if needed. Dissolve Jello in cherry juice, let cool completely. Add Coke or 3/4 cup water. Let set until slightly congealed, about 1 1/2 hours in the refrigerator. Add cherries and nuts.
Pour into 3 cup salad mold or 5 x 7” glass dish; chill until firm.

Serves 6
