I've been making this salad for several years and it's always well received. I reduced the hot water to 1 cup dissolve the jello and add 3/4 cup of the drained pineapple juice. I also add 1 tsp. lemon juice. The smaller amount of liquid makes the salad firmer as I usually pour it into a jello mold. Read More

I used fresh cherries and sugar free gelatin. Very bad idea. Next time I'll stick to the recipe minus the celery. Read More

Great recipe! I left out the celery and added a small peeled apple instead. I find that it really helps if you use some of the excess pinapple juice in the blender with the cranberries first. I don't blend the oranges or apples. I agree with only using 1 cup of water too. (you can also use strawberry gelatin mix) Everyone in my family LOVES this cranberry salad! Yummy!!! Read More

I am not a big fan of celery in "fruity" things so I replaced it with a chopped Granny Smith apple. I also did not grind the entire orange I grated off the orange-only of the peel for the salad then removed the bitter white rind before chopping up the fruit in the blender. The flavor definitely improves the next day so make it the day before you need it. Read More

This was just the recipe I was looking for that my mom used to make. I left out the nuts and celery (kids) and added an apple to grind up in the food processor with cranberries and the orange. This is so easy to whip up as a side dish adn well recieved by my Christmas Eve guests. Thanks for a winner! Read More

I made this for Christmas dinner I was a little nervous of what the kids might think but they LOVED it alongwith all the adults. I mixed the jello with the water last so it wouldn't sit. I also used cranberry raspberry jello. Very very good!! = Read More

Awesome! I got lots of compliments at Thanksgiving by people starting with "I don't normally like cranberry salad but this is really good could you give me the recipe?" I used sugar free raspberry jello and also 3/4 c of sugar instead to lighten it. Also only used 1 cup of hot water. Read More

This is a really old recipe that my family has enjoyed probably since the advent of jello. Now that cranberry jello is available, I use that instead. The ground orange with peel is what sets this apart from so many other recipes. Cannot say enough good things about this recipe, and am glad that it is online for others to enjoy! EDITED TO ADD: There is one change I would make to this recipe if you watch the video. Do. NOT slice the whole orange in pieces and throw it in the blender with the cranberries. First, Peel away just the colored orange part of the peel and toss into the blender with the cranberries. Second, peel the white rind from the orange and throw it away This is white pith and very bitter. NOW, Cut your orange in the chunks and throw it in the blender and proceed. Always toss away the white part of the rind with any citrus recipe including recipes made with lemon???? Read More
