Frozen Cherry Salad

As mentioned, I write a resident recipe column for our monthly neighborhood magazine. For the month of August, we wanted to featured a cool and refreshing dish for us Texans to enjoy during the hottest month of the year! Here’s the article:

About ten years ago, neighborhood resident Marie was hosting the ladies luncheon from her investment group during the hot summer month of August and wanted to share something cold and delicious. After thumbing through dozens of cookbooks, she discovered this recipe, and it has become a summer regular. Since it is frozen, it keeps for several weeks in the freezer, covered. Enjoy!
