Quick Cranberry Gelatin Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
Since this tangy salad keeps well, I make it a day ahead for my Christmas menu. It's also a great choice to take to a holiday potluck - even people who aren't fond of cranberries think it's yummy. I got the recipe from a friend at church who likes to cook and bake as much as I do. -Betty Claycomb, Alverton, Pennsylvania

"I LOVE this recipe & I've made this recipe a # of times-only without the red grapes! I also put the cranberry jello mixture in a 6-cup mold and chilled it overnight! I had to make this salad for a chapel function held today and I know it will go over well! I did add the grapes this time! Also: I used less PINEAPPLEthan the 20 oz. full can-I measured out 1-3/4 cups crushed pineapple and it worked very well for me! I also just chilled the entire mixture overnight instead of letting the jello sit 1/2 hour in refridge! Dawn E. Lowenstein"
