"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."
"I was looking for the Jello salad that my Mother in law would always make for Christmas and this is it. I brought back memories of many good times. Thank you for posting a great recipe."
"This recipe is very much like the Cranberry Jello Mold I had every Thanksgiving growing up. My Mother passed away in 2007 and a lot of her recipes and things disappeared. I followed the recipe as written with the exception of using raspberry Jello. It is Tuesday before Thanksgiving and I just put the mold into the frig to completely set. It is delicious. The apples, celery and walnuts really enhance this recipe. Thank you so much. I will continue to use only this recipe..."
"Thank you! Although I have not checked this year, I have tried to find this on the Jello website for multiple years! A slice of my childhood reclaimed! You are right, this is a must for Thanksgiving and Christmas."
"OH! This is wonderful! I don't use the black cherry, I use the cranberry or raspberry jello flavor. The combination of nuts, apples and celery is so refreshing! I make this all year round, but always @ Thanksgiving!"
"I made this last year and thought I lost the recipe.. Thank god it was still here my family has been talking it up since last Thanksgiving.. Thanks"
"This is the only cranberry recipe I use and it's delicious! For a tangy sweet topping try mixing equal parts mayonnaise and whipped cream. It sounds like it'd be gross but it's fantastic. Glad this recipe is here!"
"This recipe was great. We will make it a family special next year too. Thanks again, Jim."
"This was an excellant addition to our dinner. We usually have Waldorf salad but this was better. And I normally don't care for whole berry cranberry sauce but... I liked it.. I really liked it. And so did everyone else. Great recipe.. Thanks"
"This had a very good flavor. I didn't make it as a Jello mold, just a regular Jello salad. I'm not a big fan of cranberry sauce, so we served this for Thanksgiving instead and it was a hit! Thanks Oolala!"
"I remember this from my childhood but Mom always made it from memory. Thanks for providing a detailed recipe. This is a must for Thanksgiving!"
