Cherry Salad

This is a recipe that my mom got from one of her best friends.  It was a big favorite of our family - especially one of my brothers who loves cherries.  This is a good way to use up bananas if you wind  up with more than you can eat.

Cherry Salad
1 can red tart cherries (this is NOT cherry pie filling), drained
1 or 2 sliced bananas
You can also add coconut or mini marshmallows. Mom usually added the coconut but I don't keep it on hand.

1 cup milk
1 Tbsp flour
1/2 cup sugar
Mix the milk, sugar and flour in a large saucepan.  Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.   When it reaches boiling it will get thick and creamy.  Allow to cool.

Drain the cherries and place in a large mixing bowl.  Slice the banana(s) in with the cherries. Pour the cooled milk mixture over and stir well.  Refrigerate for several hours.

The tart cherries and the sweet banana slices in the creamy sauce is so good.  You will want to like the bowl clean!
