Recipe: Creamy Cranberry JellO Salad

This is my favorite Thanksgiving dish The sweetness is a nice contrast to the saltiness of the turkey. The walnuts and apples give a nice texture, but make sure they are chopped small enough. The mayo seems like a strange addition, but you dont taste it, and it improves the texture of the cream cheese. Enjoy

Creamy Cranberry Jell-O Salad Reviews

  • Instead of mayonnaise, I used sour cream. I also used pecans instead of walnuts. At the last minute, I folded in half of a small bag of mini marshmallows. I made no other changes. Instead of letting it set up in a serving bowl, I spread it in a 9x13 baking pan. Once it set, I spread the top with Cool Whip. This is to DIE FOR. We all loved it.

  • Took this to a Thanksgiving supper at Lodge and everyone raved. Requested again this year.Of course made at home also. Jackpot. A Keeper.

  • I cant wait for this to set up all the way From what I could taste, it is so delicious And that was without all the combined textures

  • This was a big hit at Thanksgiving I added an extra apple and extra walnuts.

  • Loved this recipe and it was a big hit at my work potluck.

  • Everyone at Thanksgiving loved it.

  • Its excellent and Im often asked to bring it to holiday functions. I leave out the nuts because of allergy issues.

  • This is the exact recipe Ive been looking for. However, I dont have cream cheese so Im going to use cottage cheese. Hope it works as well. Will also add some chopped celery. Love allrecipes - can always find what Im looking for

  • I made this exactly as printed. Very yummy and Im sure Ill be making this again.

  • Due to food allergys we had to omit the apples and the walnuts, we also used sour cream instead of Mayo and it turned out very good. Thought about adding pecans but didnt just in case there was also a food allergy to them also
