Fresh Cranberry Jello Salad

READY IN: 5hrs 20mins
Recipe by rochsann

The women in my family are addicted to this mandatory holiday dish. It has cranberry tartness combined with the sweetness of grapes and mandarin oranges, all encompassed in the comfort of jello. It comes from the "It's About Thyme" cookbook by Marge Clark, who by her recipes must be a special lady.

Served for Thanksgiving. My kids thought this was the greatest thing since sliced bread. It's a good thing it makes so much, even though they ate an obscene amount, we still have enough for leftovers. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
