Made this as per the recipe & it made for A WONDERFUL SALAD! I don't usually do cranberries this way, but the chopped raw berries gave a nice change! Will be making this again a number of times before fresh cranberries are hard to get! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]

I should have check amounts on hand before starting this,lol. I didn't have as much juice as I thought and made up the missing 1 1/4 cups with diet Ginger Ale (tastes good but gave the gelatin a brown cast), the cranberries became plumped currants (I knew that I was changing that because I'm not a big lover of cranberries) and the walnuts became pecans. I really enjoy this a lot and I love that it's not as sweet as the commercial Jell-o (Mike, I used all Splenda for the sugar and it works perfectly btw). Very good and great for the summer :D. Made for Photo Tag.

I thawed and used cranberries I'd frozen quite awhile back and substituted pecans for walnuts (personal preference). This was delicious with just the right amount of sweetness.
