Revive extra cranberry sauce in this good and easy salad. This is one of the recipes I made for the first Thanksgiving dinner I cooked years ago and has become a seasonal favorite at our house.—Dixie Terry, Goreville, Illinois
This lovely molded salad looks and tastes festive. Its orange and cinnamon flavor combination will make it a popular side dish for most any entrée.—Jennifer Kauffman Figueroa, Greenville, South Carolina
This recipe was passed down by my mother. We serve it often, but especially at Christmas and Thanksgiving. Of course, the green color makes it nice for St. Patrick’s Day, too. With the marshmallows, pecans and whipped cream, the sweet salad can even be served as a light dessert.
I like to cook for both small groups and large crowds. When our entire family gets together for thanks and feasting, it’s a wonderful time!
An original recipe, my molded gelatin gets a tropical twist from coconut, pineapple, and macadamia nuts. It's a wonderful anytime treat. Now that I'm retired from teaching, I have more time for kitchen experiments. —Carol Gillespie, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania
THIS recipe was in a community cookbook compiled by our high school’s booster club 22 years ago. The measurements and directions were vague so I experimented until I got it right. This is a pretty salad to serve at luncheons and the flavor is light.
