Replacing a quote in a string

I have a use case where I have the following text in a field:


The above is the output of the text field.

I need to replace the \ characters above - I'm looking to get the following output:


So i need a search and repalce for just the \ above.  The problem is this character is an escape character, and I have been fighting with searchandreplace to get this to work.  Current iteration:

var text jsonStripped = SearchAndReplace($json, "\"", "");

This strips the quotes and the \ character making the output:


I need to keep the quotes, so the text is valid JSON.  Any ideas?
