Delicious salad! I tweaked it a bit to suit my family’s taste! I add in chopped celery, 1 chopped apple. I am wondering though if fresh cranberries could be used in place of the jelled cranberry?

I made this recipe exactly as it was written and after an hour and a half it still had not set up. What's up?? Wondering in Floida

My mom made something similar back in the 50's. She put them in small individual molds and served on lettuce leaves. Hers included celery and walnuts. The back porch was freezing so she didn't have to use the fridge to set them up. I know because I helped to unmold them. I make it to this day.

I've been making this cranberry recipe for many years. I lost the TOH cookbook that had this recipe, so I was so glad to find it here. A holiday isn't a holiday without this delicious family favorite!! Even the kids gobble this one down!
