Cream cheese provides a pretty contrast to crimson-colored gelatin. Sweet cherries add a juicy pop!
Updated Nov 18, 2009

Ingredients

  • 2 boxes (4-serving size each) cherry-flavored gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups frozen unsweetened sweet cherries
  • 2 cans (8 oz each) crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
  • 1/2 cup honey-nut cream cheese (from 8-oz container)
  • Leaf lettuce leaves, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water, stirring constantly. Stir in frozen cherries until thawed. Stir in pineapple.
  • 2
    Into ungreased 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish or another serving dish, pour about half of the gelatin mixture. Refrigerate 30 to 45 minutes or until set.
  • 3
    Drop cream cheese by small spoonfuls over set gelatin mixture; carefully spread to cover. Pour remaining gelatin mixture over top. Refrigerate at least 2 hours until set. Cut into squares. Serve on lettuce leaves.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If the room-temperature gelatin for the top layer starts to set up, just microwave it for 10 to 20 seconds.
  • tip 2
    Make the salad up to 24 hours ahead of time and store in the refrigerator.
