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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bolw, dissolve Jello in 1 1/4 cups of hot water. Add 1 1/4 cups cold water and stir. Chill until just beginning to set.
  2. Meanwhile, grind together cranberries and apples (I use a food processor). Add pineapple, oranges, sugar and nuts (if using). Mix.
  3. When Jell-O has begun to set, add fruit mixture. Fold in well. Pour into a large mold and refrigerate until set.

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!
