"I like to take advantage of gelatin mixes and pie fillings to make colorful salads that can be prepared the day before you need them," remarks Chris Rentmeister from Ripon, Wisconsin. "These fruity squares are great for everyday suppers yet special enough for company."

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) cherry gelatin
  • 1-1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
  • 1-1/4 cups lemon-lime soda, chilled
  • Whipped topping, optional

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in water. Stir in pie filling and mix well. Slowly stir in soda (mixture will foam).
  2. Pour into an 8-in. square dish. Cover and refrigerate until firm. Cut into squares. Garnish with whipped topping if desired.
