Cherry-Cider Salad

2 cups apple cider or apple juice

1 6-ounce package cherry-flavored gelatin

1 16-ounce can pitted dark sweet cherries

1/2 cup thinly sliced celery

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1 3-ounce package cream cheese, softened

1 8 1/2-ounce can (1 cup) applesauce

Leaf lettuce

Bring apple cider or juice to boiling. Dissolve gelatin in boiling cider. Drain cherries, reserving syrup. Halve cherries and set aside. Add enough water to reserved syrup to measure 1 1/2 cups liquid; stir into gelatin. Set aside 2 cups of the gelatin mixture; keep at room temperature. Chill remaining gelatin till partially set. Fold cherries, celery, and walnuts into partially set gelatin. Pour into 6 1/2 -cup ring mold. Chill till almost firm. Gradually add reserved gelatin to softened cream cheese, beating till smooth. Stir in applesauce. Spoon cream cheese mixture over cherry layer in mold. Chill till firm. Unmold on lettuce-lined platter. Serve with mayonnaise or salad dressing and sprinkle with additional walnuts, if desired. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
