MMmmmmm, this is more like a desssert then a salad. I made it with the cherry jello and pie filling as that is what I had on hand, but its delicious. We well continue to make this salad. Thank yo so much for sharing.

Wow, this was excellent and very easy to make. It all went very quickly. This could also pass for a dessert very easily. I would recommend a wider bowl or pan so the top layer that is very sweet would be a little thinner. Thanks for sharing Marg.
