This cranberry salad is a family tradition. No holiday would be complete without it. It's a perfect blend of sweet and tart. My eight year old has made the cranberry salad all by himself for the last couple years, and is so proud to contribute to the holiday feast.
Mix cranberries and sugar and let stand overnight. Dissolve gelatin in the boiling water.
Refreshing and goes perfectly with turkey or chicken.
This is a great salad for the holidays which will be upon us before we know it!
This is a great holiday salad, but also good for every day. Love the fresh cranberries!
Only three ingredients go into this salad and its a great alternative to the stuff that comes in a can. Add bag of cranberries, orange slices, and apple into food processor.
Cook cranberry sauce and gelatin to a slow boil. Remove from heat and add pineapple, cherries, and nuts. When cooled slightly, pour into medium size serving dish and refrigerate until set.
Toss ingredients together. Mix honey and lemon juice together. Drizzle over top. Chill and serve

Ocean Spray had a recipe on its can for a salad that I have lost. It called for Ocean Spray whole cranberry sauce, jello, pineapple, and nuts. I'm not sure what else, but it seems like an apple and oddly carrots. I remember that the pineapple was put in after the jello had set to almost firm (I think). Can anyone help?

I went to Ocean Spray's recipe site and this one sounds like it just might be the one you're explaining. I'll venture to bet they switched the carrots you mentioned for celery. I hope it's what you're looking for, let me know if it is, okay? :-)

On the food network site, they had videos with Paula Dean and her favorite Thanksgiving recipes and she made a cranberry salad on there just like what you are looking for. Look there and Good Luck!
I had a recipe from an Ocean Spray cranberry sauce can that called for crushed pineapple, a can of Ocean Spray whole cranberry sauce, nuts, and jello. It seems the jello was made as directed on the box. It did not have any cocktail or other kind of juice added except the drained juice from the pineapple and water. This is all I can remember.
I found this one, not sure if it is what you are looking for.
Best of luck to you, it sounds great!
