“I'm posting this here on Zaar for safekeeping. I'm going try this yummy-sounding salad soon. The woman, (Debbie Sinor), who's mom invented this recipe came in runner-up in a recipe contest. She serves it on New Year's Day, and says she always holds true to her mother's tradition, leaving one maraschino cherry whole. Whoever gets the whole cherry will have good luck in the new year!”

  1. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water in large bowl. Stir in 1/2 cup cold water and coconut milk. Refrigerate, uncovered, until slightly set (mixture should have consistency of egg whites), about 1 hour.
  2. Lightly coat 12-cup mold or nonstick Bundt pan with cooking spray. Whisk slightly set gelatin until well blended, then fold in marshmallows, oranges, and cherries. Pour gelatin mixture into mold and refrigerate, uncovered, until set, about 4 hours. (Can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.) When ready to serve, invert onto large plate.
