Cherry Cola Salad
Heart Smart p.110

Oh, remember those golden days of childhood, when you asked the man behind the soda fountain to mix you up the best cherry Coke in town? I do! Now I'm celebrating those good memories, and the flavors you never forgot, in this luscious fruit-and-nutty salad.

1 cup (one 8-ounce can) crushed pineapple, packed in fruit juice, drained and 1/4 cup liquid reserved
3/4 cup water
1 (4-serving) package JELL-O sugar-free cherry gelatin
1 (8-ounce) package Philadelphia fat-free cream cheese
3/4 cup diet Coke
2 cups (12 ounces) bing cherries, pitted and halved
1/4 cup (1 ounce) chopped pecans

In a small saucepan, combine reserved pineapple liquid and water. Bring mixture to a boil. In a large bowl, combine dry gelatin and boiling liquid. Mix well to dissolve gelatin. Add cream cheese. Mix well using a wire whisk until smooth. Stir in diet Coke. fold in pineapple, cherries, and pecans. Pour mixture into an 8-by-8-inch dish. Refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours. Cut into 8 servings.

Hint: Bing cherries are also known as dark sweet cherries
