This has been a family favorite for years. I don't reserve the extra for the top...I just mix all together. People who don't care for the traditional cranberry jellos or sauces love this dish.
This was a hit for Thanksgiving! My in-laws loved it. Now I am going to try it again for Christmas!! Love it!
This was so tasty! We really enjoyed this salad on our Sunday Brunch table. Its very refreshing, and the cream cheese adds a new dimension to gelatine. Thanks Eleanor!
I made this salad a few years ago and have made it, upon request every year since. I'm not a cranberry person but I really enjoyed this salad. The only thing I changed is I used canned mandarin orange slices chopped up since I didn't have an orange on hand. I broke the salad up w/a fork and served it..huge hit!
I passed this recipe along to my mother to make for Thanksgiving. It turned out very well and was enjoyed by all. Even the 3 year-olds liked it.
INSANE it's soo good!! and I am a major cool-wip snob...but THIS is great!! I had to lick the spoon!! ;) Oh, my husby bought the 12 oz tub of cool wip and the 20 oz can of pineapple, I just threw it all in, it worked alright!!
This was pretty good, but to me more like a dessert than a salad because of the sweetness.
