A Little Different Cranberry Salad

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by TXOLDHAM

I found this recipe back in the 1960's and just love it. In browsing through the other Cranberry Salad recipes on here I didn't see one using sour cream so wanted to post. It is really good so give it a try. You could use sugar-free jello and light sour cream to reduce the calories. Cooking time is the time to set in the refrigerator.

I halved this recipe and had to add some plain yogurt to make up for my shortage of sour cream. It resulted in a wonderful tart and creamy Jello! Thanks TXOLDHAM for another delicious recipe. Roxygirl
