If you love Cherry Pie, you will be sure to love this Cherry Pie Jell-o Salad! So festive for the holidays, but delicious any day!
Cherry pie Jell-O Salad. I don’t have anything like it on my site. I don’t even think I have any other Jell-O Salads at all?? I have Jell-O Shots! Two Collections of them, actually! And a Chocolate Jell-O Pudding Frosting recipe that will rock your world. But Jell-o Salad? Nope. Well, except one. This one.
^LOVE IT? Pin IT!^
Why? Well, I guess I should make it known that I am not a huge fan of Jell-o. It’s okay in its plain form, but when those Jell-o salads start getting funky stuff like marshmallows, cool whip, fruit (brown bananas??) and even NUTS? in them… that’s when my nose has always turned up. Of course, now I am surrounded by lots of talented foodie friends and I can’t believe how much more sophisticated Jell-O salads have gotten!
Sophisticated Jell-O Salads:
- Cranberry Jell-O Salad
- Triple Layer Christmas Jell-O
- Orange Jell-O Salad
- Lemon Pineapple Jell-O Salad with Whipped Topping
My Aunt Carol is an awesome cook, and we take turns throughout the year having dinner at their house and at our house. I always look forward to her meals. A few years ago, she made this Jell-O and I almost didn’t try it. But I couldn’t hurt her feelings, and honestly… my kids are there, I always make sure they try EVERYTHING, so I have to set an example right?
So I did. And boy was I glad. So, here is where I start over. I have never been a huge fan of Jell-O. But I have ALWAYS been a huge fan of PIE! I especially love cherry pie. Something about cherry pie filling is just so.darn.good. So, I am a new believer in Jell-O salads — But the brown banana kind? Still a big NO.
Ingredients in Cherry Pie Jell-O Salad
- cherry pie filling
- cherry jell-O
Yep. Three ingredients, and one is water! It’s so super easy to make, and can I just tell you my favorite thing to make when I make a ham? They pair together perfectly. With the holidays coming up, ham season is here, And it’s red, so it’s festive. It’s again, easy, and it certainly won’t break the bank.
Give it a whirl… It might make a Jell-O Salad believer outta you!
