Reviews for Quick Cranberry Gelatin Salad
"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!!"
"We can't celebrate Christmas or Thanksgiving without this dish!"
"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"
