Since this tangy salad keeps well, I make it a day ahead for my Christmas menu. It's also a great choice to take to a holiday potluck - even people who aren't fond of cranberries think it's yummy. I got the recipe from a friend at church who likes to cook and bake as much as I do. -Betty Claycomb, Alverton, Pennsylvania

"A nice change of pace for the Thanksgiving table. I omit the grapes and pecans, but it's still good."

"Yummy tradition that's also easy! Btw, I omit the grapes and add chopped celery. I know it sounds weird, but it takes it to that next level, trust me! I do 2-4 stalks depending if I double the recipe or not, just stir it in with everything else. I also prefer walnuts to pecans, that's really a preference thing."

"Love this recipe, but I don't know how the publisher can say "0 sugar." The pineapple alone has about 22 g of sugar and the canned cranberries has another 20 g. I made my own cranberries with fresh cranberries and Stevia, plus I used sugar free Jello to try and reduce some of the sugar and it still turned out great. Anyway, I would have given this a 5-star rating, but because of the sugar, I reduced it to 4 stars."

"I LOVE this recipe & I've made this recipe a # of times-only without the red grapes! I also put the cranberry jello mixture in a 6-cup mold and chilled it overnight! I had to make this salad for a chapel function held today and I know it will go over well! I did add the grapes this time! Also: I used less PINEAPPLE

than the 20 oz. full can-I measured out 1-3/4 cups crushed pineapple and it worked very well for me! I also just chilled the entire mixture overnight instead of letting the jello sit 1/2 hour in refridge! Dawn E. Lowenstein"
