Holiday Cranberry Apple Salad

This is one of the BEST cranberry salads I've ever eaten and to be honest, I don't really like cranberry salad! Delicious served with turkey dinner, this is a winner every time I make it. If you are only serving around 12 to 20 you can half this recipe.
There is no "cook time" but I put 3 hours because it has to set in the fridge ... "chill time"! :-)

Stove Top

Ingredients

4 box
gelatin, raspberry or strawberry (3 oz each)
3 c
boiling water
2 can(s)
crushed pineapple (20 oz each), drained well
5 can(s)
whole cranberry sauce (14 oz each)

1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1/8 tsp
ground clove

Step-By-Step

1In a saucepan, bring the water to a boil; stir in gelatin and set aside to cool.

2Drain pineapple well; set aside.

3In a large bowl, combine cranberry sauce, grated apples, the rind of 1 large orange, salt, cinnamon and clove.

4Stir in drained pineapple and cooled jello. Carefully pour into a 16 cup trifle bowl. Cover and chill until firm.

5I enjoy serving it this way but if you like you can use two 8-cup jello molds, lightly sprayed with non-stick spray. Invert your salad onto a plate covered with lettuce leaves. Sooooo goooood!!!!!
