Cranberry Holiday Salad

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 packets Knox unflavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water
1 cup cold water
1 cup sugar
6 small or 3 large red apples, shredded
12 ounces frozen cranberries rinsed and shredded
2 oranges peeled, sectioned and chopped
1 cup canned crushed pineapple
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

In a 4-5 quart bowl (glass or crystal reveals the prettiest outcome) sprinkle gelatin over boiling water and stir till dissolved: stir in cold water; then stir in sugar. Use food processor to shred apples and cranberries. Works best to alternate them together. Mix chopped oranges, pineapple, celery, nuts, shredded apples and cranberries together. Stir this into the gelatin mixture and refrigerate overnight.
