Not very salad like and I'm sure very bad for you but here it is.
16 ounces of Coca Cola
1 large can of pitted black cherries (marischinos can do in a pinch)
8 ounce bar of cream cheese
1 16 ounce can of crushed pineapple
2 small boxes of black cherry gelatin
1 package of plain gelatin like Knox
3/4 cup toasted and chopped pecans
Drain pineapple and cherries, saving the juice. Heat juice until hot. Pour over cherry gelatin and plain gelatin. Dissolve in juice and chill until it just starts to gell. Pour in Coke and place in the refrigerator. Take cream cheese and roll into small balls rolling each ball in the pecans until all the cheese and pecans are done. Once it's started to gell again put cheese balls, cherries and pineapple in a gelatin mold and pour gelatin Coke mixture over the fruit and cheese. Let chill overnight. Delicious served on a bed of lettuce.
