    Elmotoo's Note:

    I hate the term 'molded salad' - it sounds like something green & fuzzy. This is my mother's Jello salad recipe. Most people I know will turn up their nose when I say Jello salad but there are never leftovers. Hmmmm...... I'm not positive on the exact ounces - small boxs of jello, big can of cranberry & small can of pineapple. This multiplies easily & can be made several days ahead & kept refrigerated.

      I love 'jello' & when I can pair that with cranberry, well . . . OUTSTANDING! My mom used to make something like this, but never used the cranberry sauce (something I like)! I made this exactly as written & really enjoyed it, BUT another time I might just substitute cold cranberry juice for the 1 cup of cold water ~ We'll see! However that works out, this is certainly a keeper of a recipe! Thank you so much for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Ramadan Recipe Tag 2009]

      This was a little sour for my taste so I added a little Splenda to the mix. The final result had an interesting taste. Made for Ramadan Tag
