Maw’s Cherry Salad, Page 67 ~

This cherry salad recipe is from my grandmother who made this sweet, fluffy creation every holiday which we celebrated on the farm at Lockney, Texas. If Mom wasn’t watching, I filled up half my plate. Maw always served this dish as a side with the turkey and ham, and I now own the bowl she served it in. I have also created a lower calorie version which is included in this book.

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 can cherry pie filling

1 large can pineapple tidbits, drained

1 large container whipped topping

1 cup pecans, chopped

Refrigerate before serving
