This is a delicious salad, that's been in my family for as long as I can remember. We just love it...the topping is scrumptious! I would make this jello salad year round, if the cranberries were available.

It's equally great for Christmas as well, and make a beautiful presentation! I just love it!

Try it for your holidays, I bet your family will love it!

Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 bag(s)
fresh cranberries
3/4 c
water
2 c
sugar
1 - 3 oz
box - orange jello
1 - 3 oz
box- cherry jello
1 - 20 oz

pecans or walnuts ~ optional - i didn't use this time.
1 - 8 oz
cream cheese, softened

whipping cream, whipped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium saucepan, add the water and cranberries, cook until cranberries are tender and are starting to pop.
2
Add the jello & sugar, stir well to combine

** Note: As long as you use 6 ounces of jello, you can use all cherry or all orange. I like to combine the two. Sometimes use all cherry.

Cool.
3
Once cranberry mixture is cool, fold in the pineapple and nuts if using.
4
Pour evenly into a 9 x 13 dish. Refrigerate until set.
5
Once jello is set, in a medium mixing bowl whip the whipping cream until peaks form.
6
In another medium mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and marshmallow cream together, until smooth.

Now, mix in the whipped cream and spread over the top of jello.
7
This can be served as a salad with your meal on a bed of lettuce or can be served as an after dinner dessert.
