I got this recipe from a magazine and made some changes to suit my family's tastes. This salad is especially nice during the holidays, but it's good with any main meal.


  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) cherry or cranberry gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 package (12 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1-1/2 medium seedless oranges, quartered
  • 1-3/4 cups sugar
  • 2 cans (8 ounces each) crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. In a food processor, finely chop cranberries and oranges. Transfer to a bowl; stir in sugar until dissolved. Add pineapple, celery and nuts. Stir in gelatin. Chill for at least 6 hours.
