I like to make this refreshing salad for summer get-togethers. It's also a great side dish during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. Everybody just loves it! -Betsy Bianco, Wheaton, Missouri

"I've been making this cranberry cherry salad for years. Plan to serve it with our Thanksgiving dinner. Delicious!!!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2009

"Tasty but a bit disappointing. Too sweet bottom layer even with SF gelatin. I would use only 1/2 can jellied cranberry sauce next time. Also the lemon jellow top layer doesn't look like the photo's white layer. I had to top with a whip cream layer and nuts."
