Cranberry Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Michael Wodnicki

Not your typical canned cranberry jelly that grandma used to serve. Thanks to my mother-in-law for this recipe. The nuts are optional and mostly change texture, not taste. If you can't find cranberry Jell-O, use two raspberry and one cherry.

Absolutely had to cut this recipe in half but partial packages of Jell-O gelatin never go to waste in my kitchen! Was unable to come up with the cranberry variety so did opt for the raspberry & cherry combo! Very nice change of pace from my usual cranberry sauce, & it was much enjoyed ~ Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef event]
