Fresh Cranberry Mold

READY IN: 4hrs 45mins
Recipe by MathMom.calif

I never bother with a mold for this, but I'm sure it would be pretty (I just use a glass-cut salad bowl). Jell-O salad with fresh fruits, including fresh cranberries. I have served it at the holidays for large family gatherings. Recipe from an old local church cookbook. "Cooking" time includes time to chill Jell-O.

Great cranberry salad! I used black cherry jello, walnuts and did not use a mold. My traditional Thanksgiving cranberry salad is very similar to this and now I have two recipes that will be family favorites. Thank you MathMom.calif!
