Here is the Coca Cola salad Bob's mother used to make - very sketchy directions but you get the idea. This is also the recipe that uses the Bing Cherries that my cousin, Julie Martin, mailed to me at Christmas.
1 pkg. Raspberry Jell-O
1 pkg. Cherry Jell-O
2 cans Bing cherries, sweet (drained)
1 small can crushed pineapple (drained, saving some for cream cheese topping)
1 cup nuts
2 bottles coca cola (cold)
She used coke that was sold in individual glass bottles. I imagine they held about same amount as our canned drinks of today.
Then mix one 4 oz. pkg. cream cheese with a small amount of pineapple juice.
Sprinkle walnut or pecan pieces to top.
