This worked out great for Thanksgiving! I used 8 oz cream cheese with a little juice and vanilla + 8 oz cool whip for the topping. I let the cranberries and sugar set overnight in fridge then added well drained pinapple and 1/4 c pecan chips instead of walnuts and put back in fridge until jello cooled, I think that helped it set up quicker, it was almost done after 2 hrs! I didn't want to cut it b4 I left so I just took pics as I made it! I will definitely use this recipe again! Thanks
This got rave reviews at Christmas dinner - everyone appreciated that I cut the sugar to 3/4 cup instead of 1 3/4 cup, and it still wasn't too tart. A keeper!
Delicious! I've made this twice in the space of two weeks at hubby's request. This jello pleases everyone! Thanks for a keeper Suzy
My mom makes this every year for Thanksgiving. It is an absolute must at our table. It's the cream cheese that puts it over the top! Mom always lets the cranberries and sugar sit overnight so the flavors blend. You can use strawberry or cherry jell-o if you prefer. We never had nuts in ours because of food allergies. Thanks for posting!
Truly outstanding!! Made it for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. Thanks for this great salad.
This is so good. Very refreshing and not too sweet - it tasted just right! The only problem I had was that it didn't set up for me very well. But since I halved the recipe, that may have been my fault so I'm not rating it. (I may have used too much pinepple or not drained it enough). I served it with Thanksgiving dinner and it went great with the turkey. Everyone loved it. Thanks Suzy for a great new dish.
