In the Kitchen: Cranberry Salad


I love serving this tart and refreshing cranberry salad for the holidays. Plus it's a great dish to make ahead of time. I grew up enjoying this wonderful recipe from my grandma. I can't imagine a holiday without it! It takes a bit of time but is well worth it. 

What you need:

1 lb. fresh cranberries 
2 apples
2 oranges
1  to 1 1/2 cups sugar
2 packs of cherry jello
1 cup of hot water
3/4 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1 small can crushed pineapple 
3/4 cup nuts ( I use pecans but walnuts are nice too)

Instructions:

  1. Grind cranberries using a food processor if possible. You can also chop by hand but I recommend a food processor. 
  2. Next grind apples and oranges in a food processor.
  3. Add sugar to all the fruit in a large bowl and stir. Set aside in your refrigerator for 3 hours.
  4. Combine 2 packs of cherry jello with 1 cup of hot water. Add 
  5. 3/4 cup unsweetened pineapple juice, 3/4 cup of nuts, and cranberry mixture. Chill for at least 6 hours so it sets up. I make this dish a day in advance so it is well set. 



I hope you enjoy making this recipe and sharing it with your family and friends this holiday season.
From the Harvest Table,
