This is almost exactly the same recipe my family has been making for Thanksgiving since I can remember! The only difference is that we use raspberry gelatin which we mix with the hot water and juice from the crushed pineapple and cool it to where it is just beginning to set then mix it with everything else. This is one of my favorites! Thanks! Read More

This is very good and full of fiber. I used sugar free jello and it was fine. It isn't real sweet which is a nice contrast to rich holiday food. At first I was concerned it wouldn't gel but it did fine. Read More

Using frozen cranberries can give you a much denser salad. Read More

This is like what we make except we use black cherry jello gives it a much better flavor. (you can also use cranberry jello or reg cherry etc. but lemon dont sound very good to me?) Also we use the juice from the pineapple boiled to make the jello and use pineapple tidbits instead of crushed. i tried with crushed before and felt like it ruined it even with such a small change.. we also use canned whole berry cranberry sauce the gel of the sauce really adds to the gel of the gelatin. We also top it with cream cheese/sour cream topping with vanilla and sugar in it home made It is AMAZING together! Great as a side or dessert! My family has always made this & I always do. It wouldnt be thanksgiving without it. My kids love it as much as their father and I. Even people who dont care for cranberrys love it. I didnt like whole berry cranberry sauce till this! Read More

This was excellent for Thanksgiving dinner. I made it with a 20 oz can of crushed pineapple undrained and 1/2 cold water added to the jello mix/sugar/hot water mixture. It came out a little more runny not as set up but my family said they liked it that way. Aslo used 1 chopped granny smith apple instead of celery for the same crunch but even more tartness/fruitiness. I thought it was perfectly sweet you could probably have even knocked the sugar down to 1/4 to 1/3 cup and been okay. Overall it was a hit! Read More

This turned out so well and was a hit at Thanksgiving! I did use cherry Jell-O instead of lemon and used only about 1/3 cup sugar. We loved it and can't wait to eat leftovers. Read More
