This is great! I made it instead of cranberry sauce and it was a huge hit. The only problem was that I couldn't find cranberry gelatin. I used cherry which worked fine, but I am sure it would have been even better with cranberry. Also, I was in a hurry to get this thing in the fridge before going to church, so I just threw it all together in a bowl. It turned out great. I don't think the added initial chilling is necessary, nor the additional step of pouring into 13x9 dish. Perhaps it just creates a more interesting presentation or something.

better to make it a couple of days ahead - for some reason the flavor really improves over time. it tasted great the day after christmas!

Recipe was a big hit. Couldn't find cranberry jello so I used strawberry. Also I used a small can of mandarin oranges instead of the regular orange.

Very Good!!! I made this at Thanksgiving and it turned out delicious. I modified mine a little I used cherry jello and add one extra pack of jello, 2- 14 oz. cans of whole cranberry sauce, extra 1/2 cup of sugar and 20oz. of Mandarin slices drained instead of oranges. I mixed my jello, sugar and hot water in the dish I was serving until jello dissolved and then added remaining ingredients and then refrigerated until ready to serve. It does taste better the longer it sets. I made mine 5 days before servings. Thanks Valorie for sharing this wonderful recipe!!! New family favorite.

This is a good spin on an old favoriat. Sometimes if I have a bigger than expected crowd, I will mix whipped topping in with it.

Soooo good! I made this instead of the traditional cranberries-in-a-can for Thanksgiving and my entire family loved it! I had to use cherry jell-o because I couldn't find cranberry, but it was still amazing. I have a feeling I'll be making it for Christmas too!

I love this salad. My mother passed this recipe to me and I make it everytime I find fresh cranberries. Makes it better in my opinion. I also use a large sugar-free raspberry jello instead of the one listed. Awesome sauce even for those who don't like cranberries!!
