Grandmother's Frozen Fruit Salad

(Okay, only the grandchildren actually don’t like this. I think everyone else does.)

  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup maraschino cherry juice
  • 1 cup diced apricots
  • 1 cup diced pineapple (14 oz)
  • 1 cup halved, seeded grapes
  • 1 cup chopped maraschino cherries (12 oz jar)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups colored mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

Soften gelatin in cherry juice in top of double boiler. Dissolve over boiling water. Add fruits, lemon juice, sugar and marshmallows. Chill until syrupy (no more than 1/2 hr).

Whip cream until light and fluffy. Stir in mayonnaise. Fold into fruit mixture with a wooden spoon, using an over under motion. Spoon salad into molds. (Use empty margarine tubs, 6 oz. tupperware jello molds, etc.) Store in freezer.

Unmold salads on lettuce leaves 2 hours before serving. Run a knife around each cup; press bottom to release salad. Chill until served.

Makes 8 servings.
