This recipes was orginally my DH's Grandmothers and has been tweaked by my MIL. I didn't care for cranberry salad ever till I tried this. I have been making this for years now. Its more of a Jello than a salad. Great to get kids to eat something different. It's definitely something I look forward to eating every Thanksgiving and Christmas. Great on biscuits and rolls. I make this in a large glass decorative bowl because it doesn't look good if you try to transfer it to another dish for the meals. ** Note this is best if made the night before to give time for proper set. I have a lower sugar version posted also. Suggested serving size is about 3 tablespoons.
