This is an awesome cranberry salad, easy to make and even easier to eat! My mother in law is an amazing cook and at Christmas or Thanksgiving the family demands her famous cranberry salad. Best prepared the night before the big feast!

  • Place the oranges, lemon, apples, and cranberries into a bowl. Sprinkle the sugar over the top. Set aside so the fruit has time to bleed.

  • When the gelatin is partially set, stir in the fruit. Chill until set, preferably overnight. It becomes tastier with age!

Great jello salad loaded with fruit. We love all things tart and this fit the bill. Per other review I will make with raspberry (or maybe apricot?) jello next time & there will be a next time. Read More

My family makes something like this but we have never added lemon. We do add a lot of coconut which helps it keep it shape (put it in a jello mold and it is very pretty to set on the table). Read More
