Cranberry Waldorf Gelatin

We enjoy this easy-to-make salad in the fall when apples are in season. Their crisp freshness adds so much to a favorite dish. — Debbie Short, Carlisle, Iowa

    I love this! I didn't have unflavored on hand so I just used a large strawberry Jello. I was also out of ginger but otherwise, followed the recipe. Goes great on a cold turkey sandwich!

    Gave it 4 stars due to slight changes. Omitted the unflavored gelatin ( not necessary) .Couldn't find cranberry jello, I've used a large box of strawberry jello and 1 cup of boiling water then 1 1/2 cup cold water. Otherwise I followed the recipe. A holiday favorite. ( Also have used cherry or raspberry jello. Just as tasty.)

    It is difficult to find cranberry jello, I used cranberry juice instead of water and unflavored gelatin, it needed a little sugar but was good
