Valentine Salad

3 1/2 cups fruit cocktail
1 package lemon-flavored gelatin
1 cup hot water
1/4 cup maraschino-cherry syrup
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 3 oz. packages cream cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1 1/2 cups tiny marshmallows
1/4 cup quartered maraschino cherries
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
Few drops red food coloring
Drain fruit cocktail, reserving 1 cup syrup. Dissolve gelatin in hot water; add reserved fruit-cocktail syrup, maraschino-cherry syrup, and lemon juice. Chill till partially set. Soften cream cheese; add mayonnaise and beat till smooth. Add to gelatin mixture, mixing well. Stir in fruit cocktail, marshmallows, and cherries. Fold in whipped cream. Tint pink with red food coloring. Pour into individual heart molds. (of course everyone has these in their pantry, right?)
Freeze salad several hours or overnight. Unmold atop canned pineapple rings. If desired, top with Gelatin Heart Cutouts. Makes 12 large or 18 small servings.
