This recipe will become our new family tradition. It is delicious. We like the fruit-a-plenty texture and flavor. I followed it exactly except did not find raspberry flavored gelatin in the store so used mixed fruit flavored. Overly particular mother-in-law said she could make a meal of it. I made it for T'giving and think I will make it for Christmas again. Thanks for sharing the recipe, MTM.

Before I even know what this recipe taste like, I am in a dilemma. I followed the recipe exactly to the dot, but not knowingly, used fresh pineapple juice I have on hand. Then I discover that the jello won't set. I think if the recipe had warned that only canned pineapple to be used, I would be in a better spot right now. So warning to all newbies like me.

This was so good! Everyone loved it. I used pineapple juice for the water, sugar free jello, splenda, and I also added celery, walnuts, and pomegrante. I will have to make this every year at Thanksgiving.

Served this at Christmas and it received rave reviews; tool a while to set, so would recommend making the day before. Used fresh cranberries and ran through a food processor. Great with both turkey and ham.

Loved this recipe! I will definitely make it again. I replaced some of the water with pineapple juice and added some chopped pecans. Yum! My young children loved it. Thanks for a great recipe!

I made this for Thanksgiving, and everyone loved it, even those that don't usually like cranberry salad. They requested it again for Christmas, and it was a big hit again. This is a keeper.

A huge Thanksgiving hit. I added a top layer of 8oz. Cream Cheese 1 cup Greek Yogurt, 3 talbesppons of Sugar and 1/2 cup of Chopped Pecans after the salad was firm. Lots of bright flavors!
