How to Make Grandma Aldine's Cranberry Salad


  1. combine 2 packages of cherry jello and 3 cups boiling water in large bowl. (I do this in the serving bowl to save time on clean up) - Put in the freezer to set up while you're putting together the rest of the ingredients:
  2. Chop the rest of the ingredients OR if you have one. Put it all EXCEPT FOR THE NUTS in the food processor with a metal blade and process/chop to desired consistency. Add to jello mix, cover and chill overnight.
  3. This is especially good on leftover Turkey Sandwiches.
