Cranberry Salad

Marcie Frazee


Great side with or on turkey! This is my mother-in-law's recipe that I've had to modify because Indian Trail Orange-Cranberry Relish is no longer made, so I've found a recipe that another cook created that replicates the now-extinct relish. I hope you love this as much as my family and I!

20 Min


4 Hr




2 box
raspberry jell-o (small), regular or sugar-free
2 c
boiling water
1 pkg
frozen strawberries (16 oz)
1 can(s)
crushed pineapple (10 oz)
1 pkg
fresh cranberries (16 oz) [frozen cranberries will work, too]
1 c
orange, seeded

Directions Step-By-Step

First, make the orange-cranberry sauce. 1 bag of fresh cranberries (frozen fresh whole berries are OK, too.)

1 whole orange including peel/rind, seeds removed [I quarter the whole orange, remove the seeds and stem end and add the orange quarters to the food processor with the cranberries and sugar—feel free to separate the white pith from the orange peel, if you wish.]

1 cup sugar

Chop all ingredients in a food processor or a food grinder and stir to mix. Refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.
Place contents of the packages of Jell-O in a 2-quart sized bowl, and pour boiling water over it. Stir until jell-o powder is dissolved.
Add strawberries, orange-cranberry relish & crushed pineapple to jell-o mixture.
Freeze or refrigerate until ready to use.
