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.

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

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!!!

Yummy! My whole family loved it. It is made easier with the use of mandarin oranges.

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!

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!! =}

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.

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!
