Jo is a friend of our family and has been joining us for Thanksgiving since before my boys were born. She has a lot of family recipes as always shares her Cherry Coke Salad and home made pumpkin pie with us. This is much like the cranberry pineapple salad I showed a couple weeks ago...really festive and really good!!
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!!!

Here's a link to Taste of Home for an idea of what it looks like, but the ingredients list is a little different.
