Cranberry-Eggnog Gelatin Salad
Refreshing and bursting with flavor, this festive salad is a great choice for a holiday potluck. The sweet pineapple-eggnog layer contrasts nicely with the cool and tangy gelatin on top. Since it has to chill overnight, it’s a good pick for those dishes you want to prepare a day ahead. —Nancy Foust, Stoneboro, Pennsylvania

Really like this refreshing jello salad. The eggnog is not overpowering, just adds creamy texture and lightly spiced. As a jello, easy and looks great for the holiday.
