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