Most simple, most delicious cranberry jello salad. This was my mother's recipe and has become a tradition for my family. I serve it as a side dish at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner every year.

This stuff is awesome! I loved it, the kids loved it. Even picky DH had another scoop. It's also a very pretty dish with the fruit. It's great that I finally have a use for that can of cranberry sauce besides making more muffins. Next time I'm making it into a pretty mold instead of scooping it out. Made for PAC Fall 2009. Thanks!
