Folks who love the flavor of raspberries and cranberries rave about this tart molded gelatin salad. It's easy to make and pretty enough for company and festive occasions. I like to garnish it with whole cranberries and raspberries.

From Uvalde, Texas, Judy Heiser shares this fun alternative to ice cream or sorbet for dessert. Chock-full of walnuts, cranberries and pineapple, the frozen fluff also can be served on lettuce leaves as a refreshing side dish.
Dried cranberries give this refreshing salad sweetness while chopped pecans lead a pleasant crunch. Whether served on a lettuce leaf or stuffed inside a pita, it makes a perfect lunch or midday snack.

A small-quantity salad can still be special, as this recipe proves. "I like the crisp apple, crunchy celery and chewy dried cranberries in a delightful dressing," says DeLoris Nance from Auburn, Washington.
This fluffy fruit salad gets its sweet-tart flavor from cranberries and whipped cream. We like it because it's not as sweet as many other "fluffs." I'm often asked for the secret to this luscious holiday salad.

I was given this recipe at a bridal shower our rural farming community held for me. It's become my all-time favorite salad. The color and tang the berries add to the lovely mix make it perfect for company or just my husband and me.
