We love making this recipe during the holidays. Although it's a refreshing salad/dessert any time of the year. But the festive Whole Berry Cranberries goes so well with the holidays.
Cranberry Pineapple Salad
1 can (20 oz) Crushed Pineapple
2 packages (3 oz ) OR 1 large package Raspberry Gelatin
1 can (16 oz) Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
1 medium apple, chopped
2/3 cup Chopped Nuts
Drain pineapple, reserve all liquid.Add enough cold water to measure 3 cups and pour into saucepan.
Bring to a boil, remove from heat. Add gelatin, stir for 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Add Whole Berry Cranberry sauce, and stir until well blended. Pour into a large bowl and refrigerate at least 1 1/2 hours until slightly thickened.
Stir in remaining pineapple, apple and nuts, stirring gently until well blended.
Pour into mediums size cake pan (or festive bowl) and refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.
**I have also used Strawberry Jello as a substitute for the Raspberry, when in a pinch.
