Even though our children are now in their 40’s with children of their own, I have remained friends with one of the moms. We still get together occasionally to laugh and talk about our kids and our grandchildren!
The cranberry apple salad is lovely served from a pretty bowl or molded and plated on a bed of lettuce leaves.
Jell-O Cranberry Apple Salad
- 1 bag cranberries (12-oz), finely chopped (I use a food processor)
- 1 small package cherry Jell-O
- 2 Red Delicious apples, finely chopped (about 1/4-inch)
- 1 cup chopped nuts
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
Make the Jell-O using 1/2 cup boiling water and 1/2 cup cold water. Put it in the refrigerator to thicken slightly, about 25-30 minutes.
While the Jell-O mixture is thickening, chop the cranberries, apples and nuts. I use a food processor for the cranberries and nuts and a knife for the apples.
Remove Jell-O mixture from the fridge and fold in the remaining ingredients until well blended; spoon into serving bowl or mold.
Refrigerate until firm.
