MAKE WAY AHEAD FROZEN SALAD

This salad recipe is from an old rural farm newsletter. It is a perfect "make ahead" salad for holidays and other busy times as it requires freezing and can be kept for weeks in the freezer. That makes it a great dish to keep in the freezer to pull out when a dish is needed unexpectedly.

2 (8 oz. each) pkgs cream cheese
1 cup sugar
Mix together well.

In another bowl, mix together the following ingredients:
1 cup drained crushed pineapple
1 cup maraschino cherries
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup drained fruit cocktail
1 cup miniature marshmallows
Mix well. Add to the first mixture. Fold in one large container frozen whipped topping, thawed. Pour into a large freezer-safe dish, cover tightly and freeze. Set out of freezer a few minutes before serving. Keeps a long time in the freezer.

Yield: 12-14 servings
