Toby, Please Thank your wife for this recipe...My family LOVED it! I'm not a big fan of cranberries, but this tasted like Christmas, and will be our preferred salad forevermore. I made a couple of minor changes by using all raspberry jello, and adding the zest of 2 oranges for a more citrus flavor. We had a family member missing her two front teeth, so I whizzed everything together in the food processor before chilling. Simply Divine and a perfect compliment to our Holiday Ham. Thanks!
