"I made this last Thanksgiving and forgot to write a review on it. This recipe went over so well, it was requested again this Thanksgiving. Mine is chilling in the fridge right now. I love the tart-sweet-crunchiness of the ingredients and it all melds so well together. Thanks for the great recipe!"
"recipe was great"
"This is the bomb, real family treat. My family loved it . Thanks"
"Are you in my family??? :) This has been in my husband's family FOREVER!! If I don't make this at Thanksgiving, they might disown me!!! Thanks for posting - my copy is old - and cranberry stained - plus doesn't use accurate mearuements b/c it was written prior to the size cans of pineapple we now have. This is so much better than cranberry sauce - tart and refreshing - perfect with turkey!!! I think I drain the pineapple and then use the liquid for part of the liquid component - I use my food processor for the cranberries, celery and orange. It is tedious the way my in-laws do it - this is easier!!!"
"I just made this salad twice in two days! I got the recipe from my cousin, who's been using it for over 30 years. Her recipe used 1/2 cup sugar, omitted orange, and added a little pineapple juice after mixing hot water and jello. We all loved the recipe and will include it for all holidays. It has a thick relish-like texture and sets up beautifully. I made it in a jello mold. If you're in a hurry, set the bowl on top of a bowl of ice water and it will set much faster. After it's set up pretty well, I put it in my mold. Thank you so much for sharing your family recipe. Roxygirl in Colo."
