Cherry Cola Jello Salad Recipe (1)

With summer in full swing, I am always looking for fun summer dishes to take to BBQ’s and parties. I came across this dish and thought it was a brilliant combination! The cherries and cola flavor put it over the top.

I love a good Jello Salad. I know what some of you may be thinking, that this is a dessert and not a salad. However, the definition of a salad would say differently. It’s just a combination of ingredients, which is exactly what this recipe is.

If you have never made a Jello Salad before, I highly recommend starting with this one. It is so easy, and so yummy.

What other flavors could I make this recipe in:

I love this recipe because it is so simple, and only requires a few ingredients. You could easily switch it up, and try different variations of Jello with different pie fillings.

My favorite jello’s are:

  • strawberry
  • lime
  • raspberry
  • blackberry
  • blueberry
  • lemon

With the citrus jello, you could add mandarin oranges, or pineapple to it, and it would be tasty. You could mix any of these jello flavors with a pie filing of your choosing. A lemon meringue would be delicious with this.

    I'm going to try the "diabetes-friendly(ish)" version of this... looks like it should be really convertible (diet co*ke, SF jello, NSA pineapple, Splenda pie filling) without sacrificing TOO much flavor :-) This is so "different" that it is GENIOUS, and if the test-drive is as tasty as I'm expecting, it'll probably be my go-to carry-in fruit dish! I've been wanting something that is unusual and "me," and it doesn't get much more "me" than diet co*ke. ;-)

    Hello, LOVE this Jello salad!!!! It taste amazing and is SO easy to make. I make it for 4th of July and top it with a blue maraschino cherry! Super easy and very tasty! :)~Lindsey

  3. Kat says:

    This is a version of my family's traditional thanksgiving jello mold. I was diagnosed with diabetes and thought I'd never be able to have it again until I found this recipe that is easily made sugar free. Thank you so much.

  4. Pam Ihle says:

    I made this with SF jello and low sugar pie filling. It was too much pineapple with large can, so would use small can next time. Would also use black cherry jello as I just prefer that more. It is good though.

  5. Dixie says:

    Need details adding jello with the main mixture and chilling time. Thank you.

  6. Cyd says:

  7. Sonda Newton says:

    I fix this for Thanksgiving and Christmas every year and add chopped pecans to it for an extra crunch. Sooo good!
