Cranberry Salad

Cranberry Salad

1 lg. package of frozen cranberries (not sure if you can use fresh for this recipe)

2 Cups chopped nuts ( I use walnuts)
1 lg. fresh orange
1 sm. can crushed pineapple
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 apples, peeled and chopped
1 1/2-2 cups sugar
4 boxes of jello (2 red, 2 orange, or four of one kind)

Grind the cranberries and peeled orange. Add apples, lemon juice. Pour sugar into the mixture. Let stand for a few minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients, stir.

Last, add jello that has cooled but not set. Set in the refrigerator.

This is my mothers' recipe. She used to make it for us kids at Thanksgiving time.

You can use fresh cranberries, amber. I've made something similar for Thanksgiving for the last couple of years and everyone loves it. Grind up your berries the night before and sugar them overnight in the fridge.

if you use fresh cranberries, freeze them first;
they are much easier to chop

That's a good tip Lucky, I often do the same thing with blueberries too

I wanted to bump this up after searching for it. I made it last year and we loved it. Thanks, Amber, for posting it.
