Creamy Cranberry Salad Recipe

I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far! We are expecting snow in Minnesota tonight and tomorrow, so Ella and I will be at home trying out some new recipes after we go see Santa later today!

This cranberry salad is such a beautiful dessert and is so perfect for the holidays! I brought it to Thanksgiving at my Mom's house and we really liked it. It's easy to make and it part of it can be prepared the night before! Enjoy!

Creamy Cranberry Salad

by Sheena
  • 1- 12 ounce bag fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1- 6 ounce package red jello (I used raspberry)
  • 1- 8 ounce can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 apple with peel, grated
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1- 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
Process cranberries in a food processor or blender. In a bowl, pour cranberries over sugar. Stir to dissolve.
Bring 3/4 cup water to a boil. Stir in jello and cool. Stir cooled jello in the cranberries and add pineapple, juice, apple and pecans. Mix well, cover and refrigerate overnight.
Whip the cream and beat in the cream cheese. In a glass serving dish, layer half the cranberries, the whipped cream and then the remaining cranberries. Refrigerate until serving.
