Cranberrry Celebration Salad
  • 1 bag of whole cranberries
  • 1 tart red apple cored, but unpeeled
  • 1 orange unpeeled
  • 1 pear cored, but unpeeled
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup chopped English walnuts
  • 2 pkg. raspberry jello
  • 3 cups boiling water
  1. In food processor, finely chop cranberries, apple, orange, celery and pear. Transfer to bowl and add 2 cups of sugar. Mix together and let stand until sugar is dissolved and syrupy. In separate bowl, dissolve jello into 3 cups boiling water. Refrigerate jello until it just starts to set. Mix jello and fruit mixture and add nuts. Return to refrigerator until set. Will not completely set like regular jello, but will be of a good consistency for a side dish. Was great with ham and I'm sure would be a nice side with turkey as well.
After looking for weeks for a recipe similar to a cranberry salad my mother-in-law purchases at a market deli, I decided to try it on my own. It turned out wonderful and is almost addicting.
