Nana's Cranberry Salad

"This recipe is my Great Grandmother's...It has been in our family for many many years. The celery and walnuts add great texture and flavor. The preparation can be done in between other tasks and it's definitely worth it and not your plain old cranberry sauce! Sometimes I make this throughout the year and freeze it in individual containers for a fantastic breakfast. It freezes very well."

directions

  • Chop the cranberries in a food processor. Place the cranberries in a bowl, add sugar and set aside in the fridge.
  • Dissolve gelatin into boiled water. Once dissoved, add ice and stir until melted.
  • Pour gelatin into a 13x9 glass pan and set in the fridge until almost set (20-30 minutes).
  • While the gelatin is setting, chop all other ingredients:

  • Quarter apple & remove seeds, but leave on the skin. Chop in food processor and place in a mixing bowl.
  • Peel the orange, leaving on about 1/2 of the peel. Quarter and chop. Place in the bowl.
  • Cut seedless grapes in halves or quarters, depending on their size. Place in the bowl.
  • Quarter the celery and add the walnuts to processor for chopping. Place in the bowl.
  • Once you have completed chopping, the gelatin should be set. Take the 13x9 pan out of the fridge, stir in the cranberry mixture & the other chopped ingredients.
  • Spread everything out evenly & return to fridge. Allow gelatin to finish setting (about another 20-30 minutes).
  • NOTE: If gelatin gets solid before your ingredients are ready, you can still make it. It will mix okay and set up again.
