Recipe by Carri Hyche
"This is one of my Meamaw's recipes for the holidays. It's great for Christmas and Thanksgiving and has been what I've looked forward to during the holidays since I was a little girl. It's also EASY! Hint: make this recipe a day before you serve it so it has time to set."

I can certainly see why Carri looked forward to this salad. Fantastic flavors all melding together to create a party for the palate. The holidays are rapidly approaching and I always like to test recipes on my family before making for dinner guests. My family says this is a keeper!
It's good, but none of the kids ate it cause it looked like mushed-up brains.... I will use it for their halloween party.
I tried this recipe for Thanksgiving and it is now my favorite. The combination of flavors was perfect -- not too sweet and not too tart. I wasn't sure if I'd like everything processed so much (I used a food processor) but the texture was fine, even though the only identifiable ingredient was a few bits of fresh cranberries. The crunch was still there. The only change I made was that I zested both oranges before peeling/seeding, and threw the zest into the food processor. I will definitely use this recipe again.
I made this exactly as written for our Thanksgiving dinner at work. Everyone raved about it! I will be making it again next week for Thanksgiving at home.
I am not a cranberry fan, but I loved this salad. I used cherry gelatin instead of raspberry, which did make it a little sweeter.
I can't quit eating this! Delish. I didn't have any carrots so I used an apple. I also didn't have any pineapple. It was still delicious. Next time I will try it with pineapple. Thanks!
This is pretty good. Wasn't a real big hit at my Ham dinner though. I suggest adding less Pinneapple and it works better with it. I enjoyed the taste and texture myself however.
