2 packages (4-serving size) raspberry gelatin powder
1 can (16 ounce size) whole berry cranberry sauce
1 medium apple, chopped
2/3 cup chopped walnuts


Drain pineapple, reserving liquid in 1-qt liquid measuring cup. Remove 1 Tbsp. of the crushed pineapple; set aside for garnish.

Add enough cold water to reserved liquid to measure 3 cups; pour into large saucepan.

Bring to boil; remove from heat. Add gelatin; stir at least 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add cranberry sauce; stir. (gelatin mixture should be thick). Pour into large bowl. Refrigerate 1 1/2 hours or until slightly thickened. Stir in remaining pineapple, apples and walnuts; stir gently. Pour into medium serving bowl.

Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Top with reserved crushed pineapple just before serving. Store leftover gelatin in refrigerator.

This never jelled. Still liquid after 24 hours in the refrig, so I have soupy salad! Somehow the ingredients are off measure; did not think that pineapple would work in gelatin salads. I should have known better.

I made this for a traditional Thanksgiving meal and everyone loved it. It was easy to make. I was hoping it would be a little more tart, but I used a very sweet apple. Even my fruit phobic Dad enjoyed this dish. I'll make this again!

I made and sent this to a get together I didn't even get to attend. Everybody went on and on about how delicious it was. I think it's my "thing" now, as they asked me to make it again this Sunday. super easy

This salad is excellent. I plan to make it again for Thanksgiving.
Actually it is so good it could be a desert.
