Wonderful, except ... I found that 16 ounces of raw cranberries (once chopped and added with the celery, etc) was too much. I doubled the recipe and it made a gorgeous jello salad in a 9 x 13 glass pan. Next time, I will use fewer cranberries. The bags of fresh cranberries are now 12 ounces -- so maybe I'll use 12 ounces per recipe instead. The flavor and crunchiness is just great. I used sugar-free jello (strawberry) since there's already so much sugar in the recipe. This was enjoyed by everyone at last night's Thanksgiving meal.

I made this for Christmas and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It was good and tart, a great side dish or alternative to canned cranberry sauce. It was really pretty, too. I regret that I didnt get a picture. Thanks for a great recipe!! I am already craving it again!

My mother-in-law used to make this cranberry salad. She wouldn't share recipes and took this one to the grave with her. My husband said he would like to have some homemade cranberry salad. This recipe seemed like it had all the same ingredients his mom's recipe used, so I tried it. My husband gave it a big thumbs up. He said it tasted just like the cranberry salad his mom made. Thank you for sharing your recipe Southern Lady.

This is a very tasty, satisfying and easy-to-make Jello salad - and it's not too sweet.

I cut this recipe exactly in half and used strawberry Jello (I had it on hand). I used fresh clementine juice and peel. This was very tart and good. I will be making this again for the holidays. Thanks Southern Lady, for posting. Roxygirl

For over fifty years this has been my favorite congealed salad to accompany the traditional turkey dinners. Just tart enough to stimulate the taste buds. Southern Lady, you done good! ! ! And you have learned well. Love you. Dad.
