Everyone love this at Christmas..
To the person who said the middle layer was less than bland... you didn't make it right! This is delicious... good any time of year!! Before my mom passed away, this was a part of every Christmas and Thanksgiving... the ONLY difference was that she used bananas in the red layer, not cranberries. DELICIOUS!!!!! Nice and cool in the summer!!
How often do you make a jello salad that is beautiful and delicious? Try this; you'll love it.
This is not only a beautiful dish. It is delicious! I dont like really sweet desserts, this is perfect.
I don't care for cranberry sauce but this recipe was delicious. I felt it needed the whipped topping but next time I'll try adding 1/2 cup powdered sugar to the cream cheese mixture.
