Reviews for Quick Cranberry Gelatin Salad
"Yummy tradition that's also easy! Btw, I omit the grapes and add chopped celery. I know it sounds weird, but it takes it to that next level, trust me! I do 2-4 stalks depending if I double the recipe or not, just stir it in with everything else. I also prefer walnuts to pecans, that's really a preference thing."
"Made this a couple of years ago for thanksgivings. Got good reviews on it. Glad i found it again.Will call it a keeper."
"Love this recipe, but I don't know how the publisher can say "0 sugar." The pineapple alone has about 22 g of sugar and the canned cranberries has another 20 g. I made my own cranberries with fresh cranberries and Stevia, plus I used sugar free Jello to try and reduce some of the sugar and it still turned out great. Anyway, I would have given this a 5-star rating, but because of the sugar, I reduced it to 4 stars."
"Made this for Easter dinner & it was so yummy! Had lost my favorite jello salad recipe with bing cherries, but this is an excellent replacement. Wouldn't change a thing!"
"Family favorite, a must for every holiday!!"
"OMG!!! this is excellent. Make it year round with or without grapes."
"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"
"Delicious! My family doesn't love cranberries, but everyone enjoyed this salad."
