Grandmother’s Coca-Cola Salad Recipe

Spice up Holiday Meals with this great refreshing recipe. My Grandmother’s Recipe is different from my Mothers and I like them both.

1 Cup of chopped Macadamia Nuts

1 Can pitted red cherries

1 Can of pineapple chunks

2 Cold 6.8 ounces bottles of Coca-Cola (substitute with two cold cans of Coke---I tried it and it is fine)

2 Packages of Cream Cheese softened

2 Packages of Cherry Jell-O

In a large pan pour the juice from the cans of pineapple and cherries and when it is hot enough to bubble, add the Jell-O packages. Stir slowing until liquefied. Mix in Cream Cheese. Add the cold Coca-Colas. Chill in large Jell-O mold or glass dish until partly set, and then add nuts, cherries and pineapple. Chill until jelled firm.

Here is a treat from their Recipe Book:

                                             For The Ladies

This menu is for a luncheon, and it is a lady-like meal with no meat dish.

Instead we use a vegetable-peanut butter loaf as the main course, which will

save on the budget. Also, don’t be frighten at the number of eggs used in the

no-meat loaf, because we use only the yolks for that, and we use the whites

of the same eggs for dessert. We do not recommend this menu for a meal

at which there will be gentlemen, for they prefer something more substantial.
