Pickled Peach Salad

Recipe from

Southern Living


1 (25.5-ounce) jar spiced pickled peaches*
1 (3-ounce) package lemon-flavored gelatin
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup water
1 (15-ounce) jar pitted Royal Ann cherries in light syrup, drained
1 cup chopped pecans
Bibb lettuce leaves (optional)
1 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
Garnish: fresh cranberries


Drain pickled peaches, reserving 1 cup liquid in a saucepan. Coarsely chop peaches.

Bring reserved 1 cup liquid to a boil; remove from heat. Stir in gelatin, stirring 2 minutes or until gelatin dissolves. Stir in orange juice and 1/2 cup water. Stir in chopped pickled peaches, cherries, and pecans.

Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 4 1/2-cup ring mold. Cover and chill 8 hours or until firm. Unmold salad onto Bibb lettuce leaves, if desired, or onto a platter or serving dish.

Beat whipping cream at high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form; fold in mayonnaise. Serve salad with whipped cream mixture. Garnish, if desired.

*2 (15-ounce) cans harvest spice sliced peaches may be substituted for spiced pickled peaches. Proceed as directed, using a 5 1/2-cup mold.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Oregon Fruit Products Pitted Light Sweet Royal Anne Cherries in light syrup.
