For a bright salad with a vintage holiday feel, we stack a layer of raspberry gelatin and cranberry sauce over a yummy pineapple-eggnog base. —Nancy Foust, Stoneboro, Pennsylvania

    12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups boiling water
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) cranberry or raspberry gelatin
  • 1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1-1/2 cups eggnog
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

Directions

  • In a large bowl, add boiling water to cranberry gelatin; stir 2 minutes to completely dissolve. Refrigerate 40-50 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  • Place cranberry sauce in a small bowl; stir to break up. Fold into gelatin mixture. Pour into an 8-cup ring mold coated with cooking spray; refrigerate 15-20 minutes longer or until set but not firm.
  • Meanwhile, drain crushed pineapple well, reserving juice in a small saucepan. Sprinkle unflavored gelatin over pineapple juice; let stand 1 minute. Heat and stir over low heat until gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in eggnog and lime juice. Refrigerate 12-15 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  • Fold pineapple into eggnog mixture. Carefully pour over gelatin in mold. Refrigerate until firm. Unmold onto a platter.

    We had this for Christmas. The cranberry layer was really good. The eggnog layer didn't have a lot of flavor. We have other cranberry gelatin recipes we prefer to this one.

    I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone liked it. I did cut back on the pineapple. Nice presentation on the table.
