This recipe is from the Cherry Marketing Institute. Since I love jello salads and I love cherries, it was absolutely made for me.

I did use toasted pecans, & another time I might just use some candied pecans! Between the fruits here & the combo of cream cheese & sour cream, this is A GREAT TASTING SALAD! Thanks for posting it! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Election Eats tagging event]
