Holiday Cranberry Salad

Holiday Cranberry Salad

This is a 1990 recipe from a Kentucky restaurant. They used all fresh fruits - and I "tweaked" it to use canned fruits. Great for Thanksgiving or Christmas meals!

Holiday Cranberry Salad


2  6 oz. boxes raspberry jello
Dissolve in 2 1/2 c. boiling water.
Set in frig to thicken but not set up.

Dice and set aside:
(be sure to put apples in lemon water to keep from turning brown)

1 red Fuji apple - cored, peeled and diced
1 granny smith apple - cored, peeled & diced
1 c. chopped celery
1 c. chopped nuts

Open and put into a LARGE bowl:

2  16 oz. cans whole berry cranberry sauce
1  20 oz. can pineapple chunks, drained good
2  15 oz. cans mandarin oranges, drained good

Add partially set up jello to above items.
Add fruits and nuts and stir all items together thoroughly.
Put in frig to "set up."
