Cheerful Cranberry Pineapple Salad

Salad Recipes from Makes 14 servings

Prep: 10 min. plus refrigerating


  • 1 - can (20 ounces) Crushed Pineapple, undrained
  • 2 - package (4-serving size each) or 1 package (8-serving size) Raspberry Flavor Gelatin
  • 1 - can (16 ounces) whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 - medium apple, chopped
  • 2/3 - cup chopped Walnuts


  1. In a 1-quart liquid measuring cup, drain pineapple and reserving all of the liquid. Remove 1 Tbsp. of the crushed pineapple and set aside for garnish.
  2. Add enough cold water to the reserved liquid to measure 3 cups and pour into large saucepan. Bring to boil; remove from heat. Add gelatin; stir at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved.
  3. Add cranberry sauce; stir until well blended. (Note: Due to the presence of whole berries in the cranberry sauce, the gelatin mixture will not be smooth.)
  4. Pour into large bowl. Refrigerate 1-1/2 hours or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites).
  5. Stir in remaining pineapple, apple and walnuts; stir gently until well blended. Pour into medium serving bowl.
  6. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Garnish with reserved crushed pineapple and additional apple slices just before serving. Store leftover gelatin in refrigerator.
