1 (15 ounce) can
mandarin oranges, drained and chopped
1 (15 ounce) can
crushed pineapple, drained
2 (3 ounce) packages
cranberry-flavored gelatin mix (such as Jell-O®)
I used strawberry jello and only added a small amount of additional sugar. I like the mandarin oranges whole so I ground up the pineapple instead. This reminds me of a salad my mother used to make. Thanks!
Too much water
I loved the taste. However, it did not make a jello mold as I thought it would. I made it the day before Thanksgiving, followed the instructions and put it in a mold, but it never firmed up like a jello mold. So, I spooned it into a dish and we ate it like a cranberry relish. Any thoughts as to why?
Tried this as my contribution to our Thanksgiving feast. It was a hit--good combination of flavors. Only complaint is that it did not set up overnight. I had to put it in the freezer for a couple hours to soldify enough to serve. I'll make it again, but next time I will use less sugar (it was sweeter than I like) and either halve the add-ins or double the amount of jello.
I used cherry jello and wow was this a big hit!
this is a really good salad. any flavor of jello works! the only thing i will do next time is coarsly chop the pecans - just a personal preferance.
