    Oolala's Note:

    A MUST for us! A neighbor in Omaha had given this to my Mom in the early'60's and she has made it every Thanksgiving since. Now I make the holiday, so I make the mold! It's very easy. Keep in mind that this has walnuts just in case you have guests who are allergic to nuts. Enjoy! *You can make this 2 days before serving so I will make it on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and keep it in the mold in the refrigerator and just unmold it before serving.

      I can't believe someone else has my family's favorite jello recipe! We've been making it for decades and Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without it. I use any red jello and usually mix cherry and stawberry and omit the apple. Toast the walnuts in the microwave for a minute or two and the skins won't be bitter. Cool before adding. This is Thanksgiving in one bite and makes a great side dish or dessert. Thanks for submitting it.

      This has long been one of my favorite salads at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Tip: Add the canned cranberry sauce to the hot jello BEFORE adding cold water so that the cranberry sauce dissolves more easily. I like to serve squares of this jello salad on a lettuce leaf with a dollop of sour cream.

      This was very good..everyone liked it. I made a topping of ¾ whipped cream and ¼ mayo to go with it.
